Christopher Eccleston To Play John Lennon


Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who) will star in a new John Lennon biopic called ‘Naked Lennon’, commissioned by BBC Four.

The film covers a short chaotic period in Lennon’s life from 1967 to 1971 when his marriage to Cynthia was ending and his relationship with Yoko Ono was beginning. During that period Beatles manager Brian Epstein died and the group itself began to come apart. I like the choice to explore this transitional time in Lennon’s life.

Naoko Mori of ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ plays Ono. Rory Kinnear portrays Epstein. The cast includes Claudie Blakley as Cynthia and Andrew Scott as Paul McCartney. No word on the casting of Ringo and George. The film was written by Robert Jones and is being filmed in London by Blast! Films. No release or broadcast date has been announced.
