Anyone know about this? British TV writers Ian La Frenais & Dick Clement have crafted a story around Beatle songs and the characters within them, and the resulting film is called Across the Universe. I don't know much about the project, I just stumbled across the trailer, and I think it looks like it's got some good potential.
Here's the trailer. (Hey) Jude meets Lucy (In the Sky) and they fall in love. Enter Max (-well's Silver Hammer), (Sexy) Sadie, (Dear) Prudence and so on and so forth. Mr. Kite is played by Eddie Izzard and Evan Rachel Wood stars as Lucy. There's sort of a fantastical, Big Fish feel to the trailer. This movie could be goooood. Release date is September 2007.
