Wednesday, February 21, 2024

The Beatles are each set to have their own movie.

"I'm honored to be telling the story of the greatest rock band of all time, and excited to challenge the notion of what constitutes a trip to the movies," Mendes, director of American Beauty, Spectre, 1917 and Road to Perdition, said in a statement.

Find out everything to know about the upcoming Beatles movies and when you can expect to see them.

According to a statement from Sony Pictures, Mendes' Beatles movies will each tell the band's story from their respective members' point of view, eventually intersecting to "tell the astonishing story of the greatest band in history."

The movies will follow the band from its creation to their 1970 split, and McCartney, Starr and the survivors and estates of Lennon and Harrison have given Mendes and producers their blessing and full rights to their music and life stories for each film.

"We intend this to be a uniquely thrilling, and epic cinematic experience: four films, told from four different perspectives which tell a single story about the most celebrated band of all time," producer Pippa Harris said in a statement. "To have The Beatles’ and Apple Corps’ blessing to do this is an immense privilege."

Are the new Beatles movies documentaries? Nope! The upcoming Beatles movies from Mendes will be scripted movies.
