Making All His Nowhere Plans

Looks like John Lennon is getting the biopic treatment:

Produced by U.K. shingle Ecosse Films and with a script from "Control" screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh, "Nowhere [Boy]" will focus on the Beatles legend's childhood and subsequent journey to icon status. Filming is set to take place on location in Lennon's hometown of Liverpool, England.
Speaking of icon status, Lennon was/is larger than life - so can a biopic do him justice? Imagine was great because it was told in his own words. Backbeat was great because the focus was on a relatively unknown piece of the Beatles story. I guess we'll have to keep checking here to get a better sense.
