Sheeran calls the tune in Beatles film

Sheeran calls the tune in Beatles film

Director Danny Boyle's untitled comedy starring Lily James and Kate McKinnon will hit theaters in the US on September 13, 2019, Universal announced Monday.

According to the Daily Mail, the working-title flick tells the story of a man who one day wakes up to find that he is the only person in the world to remember any of The Beatles' songs. Boyle, who's also on board to direct the next James Bond movie, is said to be planning on wrapping up this film before getting started on the 007 adventure.

"He is the biggest hit-maker on the planet".




It appears to be an appropriate venture for the "Shape of You" singer, who has not only made fans of Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr themselves, but also happens to be good friends with "Love Actually" writer Richard Curtis. "If anyone can make a Beatles song sound better", - shared with the publication a source close to the production company Working Title, involved in the production of the film.

Ed Sheeran has blasted a tabloid reporter for suggesting he's building a fence around his London pad to keep out the homeless. Most plot details are being kept under wraps, but it will be music-themed and set in the 1960s or '70s.

Lily James ("Cinderella", "Baby Driver") is attached to star, alongside Himesh Patel ("Eastenders"). Kate McKinnon (Ghostbusters, Saturday Night Live) is also in talks to join.
