Each of the Beatles will be the subject of his own biopic in a new Sam Mendes tetralogy set for 2027—the first scripted Beatles films with rights to the band’s life stories and music catalog. Mendes, the director of American Beauty, Skyfall, and 1917, conceived the project and will direct the four movies, one from each band member’s point of view; Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and the families of John Lennon and George Harrison authorized the films.

Mendes said in a press release, “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.” Sony Pictures Entertainment and Neal Street Productions will handle production and distribution.
