#Liam Payne is not ruling out the possibility of a One Direction reunion. In his interview with Buzzfeed, the "Strip that Down" singer reassured that the quintet boy group will reunite at some point in the future. "We have to! We have an album that we haven't even toured yet and I want to write some more songs as well with the boys," he said, referring to their "Made in the A.M." album.

1D announces indefinite hiatus after Malik's exit

Their fifth studio album was released shortly after #Zayn Malik announced his departure from the boy band in March 2015. During their first public appearance as a four-member group on "The Late Late Show with James Corden," the remaining members confirmed that they will continue their promotional activities as a quartet band.

A few months after "Drag Me Down" was released in July 2016, #One Direction delivered the sad news that they were planning to go on indefinite hiatus to take some time off. Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan had their last performance as a group on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" before they took a break from performing as a band.

The 1D members have pursued different paths since the hiatus announcement. Most of them have found success as solo artists, while others have entered the world of acting. Liam Payne, who has released two singles since going solo, thought it would be nice to collaborate with Zayn Malik since both of them have a similar type of music.

He went on to talk about Harry Styles' newfound success in the acting industry after making his debut in "Dunkirk" where he played as a British Army private.

"I think honestly he's really, really suited to the job and I know that Harry's really good at what he does," Liam Payne said.

On possible reunion with all five 1D members

Although nothing has been confirmed about the possible reunion of these One Direction heartthrobs, Niall Horan thought it would be best to be back on stage with his guys sooner rather than later. "When it will be, I don't know. I prefer not to do it after I'm 40. I'd prefer the next few years," he said in a Billboard interview.

The "Slow Hands" singer is even optimistic that Zayn Malik will join them if a One Direction reunion will finally happen. Simon Cowell, on the other hand, said he is always ready for potential reunion projects with the five members. "There's nothing to stop them, if they want to, to get together for a tour, for an album. And I made it absolutely clear, obviously, we're in," he said.
