Suffolk superstar Ed Sheeran has plans to create a film about Ipswich, and wants it to be in the style of Eminem’s 8 Mile film.
The Framlingham singer said he has already written the soundtrack for the film, with songs he hasn’t yet released.
Ed told Q magazine that he wants to it to be a cross between 8 Mile and Notting Hill.
He told the magazine: “I want to have an 8 Mile moment but 8 Mile meets Notting Hill. Not gritty like Detroit [where 8 Mile is set] but, like, Ipswich. I’ve got loads of songs about Ipswich that haven’t come out so I could make a soundtrack.”
