One Direction have no plans to make a scripted film, according to 'Where We Are' director Ben Winston
One Direction do not intend to make a move into acting.
The band - which consists of Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson - are currently preparing to release their concert film 'Where We Are', but it's been revealed they have no intention of following the likes of the Spice Girls - who made 'Spice World' - by doing a scripted movie.
Asked whether it's something the boys would ever consider, 'Where We Are' director Ben Winston told Digital Spy: "I don't think we've ever had conversations with the boys about it.
"I thought [the video for] 'Best Song Ever' was going to be very hard for them, and I remember when I pitched it to them it would be a really hard pitch - and even if they go for it, I don't know if they're going to have the ability to pull it off.
"I remember being on set in Miami gobsmacked by how brilliant they were and it sort of made me think, 'Wow, they really could do a movie like ['Spice World']'.
"But I never went to them with it, because I sort of feel that's not who they are."
Meanwhile, Julian Bunetta, who co-wrote some of the band's hit tracks including 'Best Song Ever' and new single 'Steal My Girl', recently revealed to MTV News that One Direction's new album will be a "musical rainbow".
He explained: "There is probably a whole bunch of stuff in between them ['Steal My Girl' and 'Fireproof'] that sound nothing like each other.
"So it's just one big One Direction musical rainbow; one song is green and one song is blue, one song is red."
