Well, this is an interesting development for the One Direction fandom--an uber popular fanfiction featuring a Harry Styles character, will become a movie. United Talent Agency (UTA) has signed to represent screen rights for the Wattpad novel "After," by Anna Todd, Deadline reports.

The three-part fan fiction is one of Wattpad's most read series, with over 500 million readers. Wattpad general manager Candice Faktor explained the storyline as "A happy, optimistic young girl falls in love with a guy with a dark side that is addictive, and their relationship is a rollercoaster ride."

Um...Harry is that you? It doesn't much sound like the loveable 1D guy we all know, that's for sure.

Have you read this fanfic? We haven't, but the Harry-esque character is abusive, so we're wondering how this will be adapted to the big screen.

Will fan fiction be the new inspiration for movies? Hey, it worked for Twilight fanfic Fifty Shades of Grey.

The author responded to the inevitable haters, writing: "Fanfictions are turned into books/movies all the time so I hope those of you who dislike After or me, will just take a step back and look at this as an opportunity for yourself and with all the amazing things happening with Wattpad you could be the one having a movie next! So try to remember that Wattpad is an amazing and positive community, that being said I won't engage in any fights so please leave your hateful comments on your own page."
