Ron Howard to Direct Beatles Documentary
The Oscar winner Ron Howard will direct an authorized documentary about the Beatles, reports Huffington Post.
In it reportedly will participate Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison. (Ono Lennon and Harrison will represent their respective late husbands, John Lennon and George Harrison.)
The yet untitled film will focus on The Beatles' touring years, which ended in 1966.
Apple Corps Ltd., White Horse Pictures and Imagine Entertainment will produce the movie.
"I am excited and honored to be working with Apple and the White Horse team on this astounding story of these four young men who stormed the world in 1964," Howard said in a press release announcing the documentary. "Their impact on popular culture and the human experience cannot be exaggerated."
