Mark Waters (“Mr. Popper’s Penguins”) is in negotiations to direct the Beatles-themed comedy “Get Back” for Sidney Kimmel Entertainment reports Variety.
The story centers on the discovery of a time machine by two die-hard Beatles fans, who travel back in time to prevent John Lennon from meeting Yoko Ono, whom they blame for the break-up of the Fab Four.
Chris McCoy penned the script and shooting is aiming to begin late in the Summer in London. Kimmer, Waters, Matt Berenson and Jessica Tuchinsky will produce.
