Anna Todd’s fan fiction story ‘After’, about Harry Styles, is being considered for a film adaptation according to Deadline. Stoyline: ‘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.’
Todd’s Wattpad novel has been read by more than 500 million One Direction fans, literary agency UTA agreed to represent the screen rights for the series. The movie version of After won’t be able to use Harry Styles’ name or the names of any other members of One Direction.
Her statement: ‘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.”
One Direction have already hit the big screen, of course, in their 2013 documentary movie ‘This is Us’.’
