Joseph to return to London this Christmas?

According to several red top newspapers this morning,  Andrew Lloyd Webber is trying  to woo One Direction's Liam Payne to star in a new  production  of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat which is set to return to London around Christmas this year, marking it the first time the show has played the West End since 2009. It is currently on tour until the end of October starring Factor winner Joe McElderry in the title role.

A source told The Sun, "Andrew has told those involved that his dream signing is Liam. He thinks he can bring so much to the role of Joseph, he's a natural performer." adding "there was talk of other pop stars being approached but he wants to keep the bar high and they don't come much bigger than One Direction." One Direction have been on hiatus since last year to focus on their own work, and Liam has since been working on his debut solo album. A source close to the singer said, "Liam won't do this, he is focusing on his debut solo album and this is the opposite of something he would do."
