JOHN LENNON will be the subject of a new biopic helmed by Yoko Ono, it has been announced.

The iconic Beatles star will have his relationship with Ono documented in the as-yet-untitled movie, which will also focus on their anti-war cuases.

Anthony McCarten, who penned Theory of Everything, is set to write the script; whilst Michael De Luca and Immersive Pictures’ Josh Bratman will produce with Ono.

There's currently no word on casting, but expect speculation on who'll play Lennon to be at fever pitch as development continues.

“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,” De Luca said, according to the Hollywood Reporter. 

“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.”
