Yoko Ono is producing a film that will focus on her relationship with John Lennon.
The Hollywood Reporter stated that the film is currently being scripted by Anthony McCarten, who’s also listed among the producers.
McCarten has experience in the biopic field and his previous credits include the Oscar-nominated screenplay for The Theory of Everything, which was basedo on the life and legacy of groundbreaking physicist Stephen Hawking.
“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 producer Michael De Luca, who’s also working alongside Immersive Pictures Josh Bratman on the project.
“I am also honored and privileged to be working with Yoko Ono, Anthony McCarten and Josh Bratman to tell the story of two amazing global icons.”
