Sam Taylor-Wood is set to direct “Nowhere Boy”, a biopic about Beatles singer John Lennon for Ecosse Films says The Hollywood Reporter.
“Control” screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh penned the script which focuses on Lennon’s childhood and subsequent journey to icon status.
Lennon was 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.
Casting is underway and filming is set to take place on location in Lennon’s hometown on Liverpool.
