Yoko Ono is collaborating with producer Michael De Luca on an untitled drama about Ono’s relationship with the late John Lennon.
Ono and Lennon met in 1966 at a London art gallery, where Ono was showing abstract art. They were married three years later in Gibraltar with the band itself breaking up within a year.
Ono and Lennon became strong advocates for peace and collaborated on music for a decade until Lennon’s assassination in 1980. Ono remains active in art and acting as the caretaker of Lennon’s legacy.
Anthony McCarten (“The Theory Of Everything”) will pen the script, while Ono, De Luca, McCarten and Josh Bratman will produce.
