So, as you may or may not know, the Weinstein Company has picked up North American rights to Nowhere Boy, a story about John Lennon’s early days. Well, it seems the film is casting, and we know who will be playing the two most important (sorry, it’s a fact Ringo lovers) Beatles.
First up, for John Lenon, we get Aaron Johnson whose work I am unfamiliar with. Thomas Sangster will play McCartney. You may remember this kid from a little movie called Love Actually where he played Liam Neeson’s son (quite brilliantly, I might add).
Sam Taylor Wood is directing a screenplay by Matt Greenhalgh. Click below to see our young men, soon to be superstar Beatles. Do they fit the part?
