Is this heart-throb set to take on Hollywood?

If anyone One Direction fans are still completely heartbroken over Zayn's departure, we have some good news.

The star has reportedly been in talks with director Gurinder Chadha about starring in an upcoming movie.

The Bend It Like Beckham director has said: “We’ve met and spoken. He trained as an actor first then became part of the band."

"So I think what he’ll be doing is staying true to his heart – and that’s all you can ever do”, she continued.

Hopefully this means Zayn will be on our screens at some point in the near future.

After quitting the worlds most adored boy band after 5 years, Zayn has spoken out about wanting a normal life.

We can't exactly say starring in Hollywood movies and launching a solo career is the definition of "normal", but we're agreeing with Gurinder on this one, stay true to your heart Zayn. 

The singer made his first public appearance at the Asian Awards last week where he thanked One Direction for everything.

He has been spending a lot of time with producer, Naughty Boy, and the pair are set to be releasing new music.

We just don't know what else could possibly be on the cards next for that man.
