It's one of the most memorable love stories of the '60s: famous rock legend John Lennon and up-and-coming artist Yoko Ono met in an art gallery and fell in love, and as a couple, become prominent leaders of world peace against the Vietnam War. And now Producer Michael De Luca who brought us Fifty Shades of Grey is collaborating with Yoko Ono to bring this love story to the big screen.
"The story will focus on ripe and relevant themes of love, courage and activism in the U.S. - with the intention of inspiring today's youth to stand up for and have a clear vision for the world they want," said De Luca to Deadline. The Theory of Everything script writer Anthony Mccarten will also be working together on the Lennon-Yoko film. "I am also honoured and privileged to be working with Yoko Ono, Anthony McCarten and Josh Bratman to tell the story of two amazing global icons."
According to The Guardian, the movie will be centred on the duo's celebrity status throughout the '70s, Lennon's solo career move, and the murder of the Beatles star in 1980.
With an epic collaboration of some of the most talented names in the business, and the personal incorporation of Omo - this is shaping up to be one hell of a biopic.
