Imagine … a John Lennon-Yoko Ono movie.
Producer Michael De Luca is working with Ono on an untitled feature that would track her relationship with the Beatle, as well as their antiwar efforts.
The Theory of Everything scribe Anthony McCarten will pen the feature and act as a producer on the project, along with Ono, De Luca and Immersive Pictures’ Josh Bratman.
“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 Wednesday in a statement. “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.”
De Luca is the mega-producer behind such award-winning films as Captain Phillips, Moneyball and The Social Network. This year, he won’t be in the audience on Oscar night, but instead will be busy producing the live telecast with Jennifer Todd.
McCarten also wrote the Gary Oldman-starring Winston Churchill biopic Darkest Hour, due out Nov. 24. He is repped by ICM.
