One Direction - One Direction Want Romeo And Juliet Remake

One Direction want to make their own big screen version of 'Romeo and Juliet' with Niall Horan playing the female lead.

The boy band - who were formed on UK TV talent show 'The X Factor' - would love to branch out into movies and have their sights set on putting their own twist on William Shakespeare's classic romantic tragedy, which tells the story of star-crossed lovers who take their lives after their families ban them from seeing each other.

Harry Styles told The Sun newspaper: ''Movies are something we would consider but it would have to be what we want.

''We would love to do 'Romeo and Juliet' as depicted by One Direction and we should play the parts. Niall would be Juliet.''

Niall agreed, adding: ''I don't really mind playing Juliet, if I'm honest. I'd do whatever is good for the group. I'm there. We are all there for each other.''

Meanwhile, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malick got in trouble with their management after inviting their New York cab driver to their show.

A source said: ''They had a right laugh and played a few tricks on the driver. Louis told him he was dating Celine Dion. They also told him he could come along to their gig free of charge which didn't go down well because their guest list is heavily scrutinised.''
