Can you IMAGINE a biopic documenting the teenage life of John Lennon? Well, pretty soon you won't have to IMAGINE, which was a song by John Lennon, because director and visual artist Sam Taylor-Wood is bringing one to screens:
The story of John Lennon is headed for the big screen with "Nowhere Boy," a biopic that will be directed by visual artist Sam Taylor-Wood.
Produced by U.K. shingle Ecosse Films, the script from "Control" screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh will focus on the Beatle's childhood and subsequent journey to icon status. Filming is set to take place on location in Lennon's hometown of Liverpool.
Greenhalgh's script details the story of Lennon as a lonely teenager growing up as his aunt and the mother who gave him up fight for his love. His only escape is music, art and his fateful friendship with Paul McCartney.
Get it? Nowhere Boy? It's like "Nowhere Man." The Beatles song. REFERENCE.
