Sam Mendes, the man behind films like 1917 and Skyfall, is slated to helm four distinct The Beatles movies, each concentrating on a different band member. As a result, actors who can carry a tune and have a passable Liverpool accent may definitely be polishing their resumes in the hopes of landing an audition.

For those who are unfamiliar, The Beatles were an influential English rock band founded in Liverpool in 1960 by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. The band was instrumental in the development of counterculture in the 1960s and the acceptance of popular music as an art form.

Having said that, Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, and Starr were iconic for a reason. Finding an actor with that unique blend of singing prowess, seductive good looks, charisma, and something extra that makes pop music icons stand out from ordinary individuals is going to be challenging.

With that in mind, fans are rooting to see Tom Holland and Timothée Chalamet play Paul McCartney and George Harrison, respectively. 

Sam Mendes To Helm Movies About Each ‘The Beatles’ Members?

We learned from Screen Rant that Sam Mendes is directing four films that will each showcase a different member of the Beatles in their big-screen biopic. The stories of Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and John Lennon will be told in four films, which Sony Pictures revealed on Monday. This deal may surpass all previous music biopics.

Movie theaters are anticipated to screen Mendes’ avant-garde films either simultaneously or in succession. The precise release schedule will be made public at a later time. Sony intends to release them in 2027.

Berkshire-born director, 58,  said in a statement (via Vanity Fair).

“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.”

Equipped with official biographies and the capacity to explore every facet of the phenomenon, the project has the potential to be revolutionary. It could be the biggest project in the current run of Beatles revival material, though there is still a lot to learn about the project, including the cast and the official release schedule.
