Will Harry Styles play Romeo in a new 'Romeo and Juliet' movie?

Of all the rumors about One Direction, this one sounds pretty random.

Playing a romeo in real-life probably gives this Harry rumor a little lift, but we're pretty sure Hazza doesn't have his sights set on acting.

The movie reportedly will be based on the stage play by the UK's Shakespeare 4 Kids, with shooting to begin later this year in the United Arab Emirates.

Akram Sabry of Sky Events, which put on the stage version, said, "Romeo and Juliet is going to be shot from December until the end of February....The crew came here 10 days ago and I showed them the locations and everything is good."

He added, "I got very good feedback about the romantic places here in the UAE. We are going to be shooting on some beaches, some of the islands and also some hotels like the Emirates Palace and others. The story is very romantic. A lot of people have done Romeo and Juliet before but the director has different ideas."

While Harry hasn't acted in a movie yet, who can forget this bit of genius--when One Direction guest starred on iCarly and Harry got jungle worms?

We actually believed he had jungle worms. Acting!
