Yoko Ono

A new biopic is due on the lives of John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

The film will be produced by Michael De Luca, a high-ranking Hollywood figure who has worked on such films as The Social Network.

Anthony McCarten will pen the script, following work on Oscar-winning Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory Of Everything.

Yoko Ono will co-produce, with Michael De Luca commenting: "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. 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."

Meanwhile, Yoko Ono is currently giving her catalogue an overhaul via the Yoko Ono Reissue Project - expect more titles to emerge later this year.
