Sting is set to return to the movies with a role in a new film written by a close friend. Sting hit the big screen in Guy Ritchie’s gangster movie Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels in 1998. Sting is now lined up to play a strict headmaster in a movie written by PR guru turned author Simon Astaire. The film is based on Astaire’s debut novel Private Privilege, and Astaire thinks Sting is perfect for a role. A friend tells British newspaper The Mail on Sunday, “They have known each other for years and go walking together in the Himalayas. Simon is hoping Sting will play the part.” Sting made his acting debut in the 1979 British movie Quadrophenia, playing a sharply-dressed Mod named Ace Face. Sting once said about Astaire that “While sophisticated in many of the ways of the world, I don’t think that he’s ever been east of Sloane Square.”
