Martin Scorsese is riding a wave of critical acclaim for his new film The Wolf of Wall Street, but we’re still not quite sure what’s next for the director. While this is nowhere near confirmed, a new report reveals the filmmaker may be interested in making a One Direction movie.
The 71-year-old director made an uncredited appearance in Morgan Spurlock’s concert documentary One Direction: This Is Us, and he was reportedly turned on to their music after his daughter Francesca gave him one of the British pop group’s CDs. Here’s what an unidentified insider had to say.
“Martin is very passionate and enthused about the music of One Direction.”
Nothing official is in the works, as far as we can tell, although, if he does make a One Direction film, or even their next music video, it won’t be the first time he’s dabbled in a music-based production. Among his music documentaries are The Last Waltz (1978), which follows The Band, The Rolling Stones-centric Shine a Light (2008) and George Harrison: Living in the Material World (2011). It should also be noted that he directed the popular 1987 music video for Michael Jackson’s “Bad,” which starred a young Wesley Snipes as the thug who hassles the King of Pop.
