In the upcoming movie “My Policeman,” Harry Styles will play a secretly gay man.

Amazon Studios made the teaser available on Wednesday.

The teaser shows a complicated love triangle involving Harry Styles, David Dawson, and Emma Corrin. Styles is portrayed by Tom Burgess, the closeted police officer portrayed by Styles in the story, which is an adaptation of Bethan Roberts’ 2012 novel. Burgess begins seeing Marion (Corrin), a teacher, even though being gay is illegal in 1957 Brighton. Patrick Hazelwood, a curator at a museum, is the person he is secretly in love with.

The film alternates between the 1950s and the 1990s. In the 1950s, Burgess negotiates his love triangle; nevertheless, forty years later, Tom and Marion’s strained marriage is made much more difficult when Patrick makes a stroke recovery and comes back into their lives.

According to Variety, Gina McKee, Linus Roache, and Rupert Everett round out the roster for the scenes that take place in the 1990s.

“My Policeman,” directed by British stage director Michael Grandage, was penned by playwright Ron Nyswaner.

Harry Styles’ second important movie role of the year will be in this drama. He also makes an appearance in Olivia Wilde’s upcoming September 23 film “Don’t Worry, Darling,” which stars Florence Pugh.

The movie will be seen in theatres throughout the world on October 21. Starting on November 4th, Prime Video will offer it for streaming.

Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Robbie Rogers, Cora Palfrey, and Philip Herd are the producers; Grandage, Michael Riley McGrath, and Caroline Levy are the executive producers.
