Harry Styles Inspired Movie ‘The Idea Of You’, Trailer Release

Prime Video has dropped the trailer for its steamy new rom-com, The Idea of You, which is the latest piece of Harry Styles-inspired fan-fiction to be brought to life on screen. The movie premieres on May 2, but if you’re too excited to wait, you can read the book that influenced the film beforehand. It is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Robinne Lee.

In the trailer Anne Hathaway portrays a 40-year-old single mom who gets to live out a teenage girl’s dream: embarking on a whirlwind romance with the 24-year-old lead singer of the world’s hottest boy band, played by Nicholas Galitzine.

In an interview with Vogue in 2020, Lee was asked if the novel was inspired by Styles, to which she responded, “Inspired is a strong word.” However, Lee said “the seed was planted” after researching One Direction in 2017 and discovering that Styles often dated older women.

She also noticed how scenes she had written would eerily play out in Styles’ life. For instance, after writing a scene in which the paparazzi catch Soléne and Hayes in a compromising position on a yacht, similar photos of Styles and Kendall Jenner were released.

Michael Showalter directs the film from a script by Jennifer Westfeldt, who will also executive produce. Other cast members include Annie Mumolo, Perry Mattfeld and Jordan Aaron Hall. Jaiden Anthony, Raymond Cham, Vik White and Dakota Adan portray the remaining August Moon members.

The film is comprised of a number of Oscar winners, including Hathaway for her role as Fantine in 2013’s “Les Misérables,” Mumolo for co-writing “Bridesmaids” and Schulman for producing best picture winner “Crash.”
