Four separate biopic films about each Beatle are being made by director Sam Mendes and his production company Neal Street Productions.

They have been granted full life-story and music rights by Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, and the families of John Lennon and George Harrison.

Mendes will tell interconnected stories from each Beatle’s perspective.

Mendes said, “We went out to L.A. just before Christmas to pitch the project, and it’s fair to say we were met with universal enthusiasm.”

“The reason Sony stood out from competing offers was down to Tom [Rothman] and Elizabeth’s [Gabler’s] passion for the idea and commitment to propelling these films theatrically in an innovative and exciting way,” he continued.

“Have you heard the news?” Ringo asked.

“Oh boy. We all support the Sam Mendes movie project. Yes, indeed. peace and love,” he celebrated.

John Lennon’s family wrote, “Four feature films, one from each band member’s perspective, will have global theatrical release in 2027.”

The statement included the message, “‘I’m honored to be telling the story of the greatest rock band of all time, and excited to challenge the notion of what constitutes a trip to the movies’ — Sam Mendes.”

Sony Pictures will distribute the films globally in theaters in 2027.

The films are described as a uniquely thrilling and epic cinematic experience, telling a single story about the most celebrated band through four perspectives.

Apple Corps and the Beatles’ families are collaborating to explore each unique story and bring them together in an innovative way.

Pippa Harris, Neal Street Productions partner, said, “We intend this to be a uniquely thrilling, and epic cinematic experience: four films, told from four different perspectives which tell a single story about the most celebrated band of all time.”

“To have The Beatles’ and Apple Corps’ blessing to do this is an immense privilege. From our first meeting with Tom Rothman and Elizabeth Gabler, it was clear that they shared both our passion and ambition for this project, and we can’t think of a more perfect home than Sony Pictures,” she continued.

Apple Corps Ltd. CEO Jeff Jones said, “Apple Corps is delighted to collaborate with Sam [Mendes], Pippa [Harris] and Julie [Pastor] to explore each Beatle’s unique story and to bring them together in a suitably captivating and innovative way.”

He added, “Sony Pictures’ enthusiastic support, championing the project’s scope and creative vision from the start, has been invaluable for all of us.”
