One of the most famous bands in music history is getting a cinematic tribute: well, four tributes to be precise. "Skyfall" director Sam Mendes will be directing a biopic for each member of the band.

According to Deadline, Sony Pictures and Oscar-winning filmmaker Sam Mendes, together with Neal Street Productions, have announced plans for a groundbreaking series of films about the Beatles. Mendes will direct all four films, exploring the lives of each member of the band. An unprecedented move as Apple Corps Ltd. and the Beatles have made their full life stories and music rights available for the projects. Mendes will be working with the Beatles' families and will be cross-promoting the band members' respective stories.

The movies will explore the Beatles' journey from their beginnings as the Mop Tops to becoming worldwide music legends, as well as their individual developments after the band's break-up in 1970. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, who are still alive, and the families of John Lennon and George Harrison are supporting the project.

Musical biopics are enjoying great popularity again after the mega-success of "Bohemian Rhapsody", and so it is more than understandable that the Beatles are now also being commemorated on the big screen. The four movies "The Beatles: Ringo", "The Beatles: Paul", "The Beatles: George" and "The Beatles: John" are all set to be released in 2027.

We are excited and hope for a fantastic interplay of cinema and music!
