Sony Pictures Entertainment, Sam Mendes, and Neal Street Productions have announced a groundbreaking creative endeavor to tell the story of The Beatles with four distinct theatrical feature films.

The project marks the first time Apple Corps Ltd. and The Beatles—Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and the families of John Lennon and George Harrison—have granted full life story and music rights for a scripted film.

Mendes will direct the four theatrical feature films—one from each band member’s point-of-view—that will intersect to tell the story of the greatest band in history.

Mendes will direct all four films and produce alongside his Neal Street Productions partner Pippa Harris and Neal Street’s Julie Pastor. Jeff Jones will executive produce for Apple Corps Ltd.

“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,” said Sam Mendes.

“We intend this to be a uniquely thrilling, and epic cinematic experience: four films, told from four different perspectives which tell a single story about the most celebrated band of all time,” said Pippa Harris. “To have The Beatles’ and Apple Corps’ blessing to do this is an immense privilege. From our first meeting with Tom Rothman and Elizabeth Gabler, it was clear that they shared both our passion and ambition for this project, and we can’t think of a more perfect home than Sony Pictures.”

“Apple Corps is delighted to collaborate with Sam, Pippa and Julie to explore each Beatle’s unique story and to bring them together in a suitably captivating and innovative way,” said Apple Corps Ltd. CEO Jeff Jones. “Sony Pictures’ enthusiastic support, championing the project’s scope and creative vision from the start, has been invaluable for all of us.”
