Writer and director Mark Rosman behind movies like Warner Bros’ A Cinderella Story, Universal’s The Perfect Man, and Disney’s Life-Size, is writing and directing In My Life, a Beatles-inspired film. Wyatt Oleff (I Am Not Okay with This), Kevin Pollak (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), and Janeane Garofalo (Ratatouille) are set to star in the film.
The comedy/drama follows Evan, a 16-year-old John Lennon wannabe, who is absolutely thrilled when the Beatles move in next door to his home before they are set to play at the Hollywood Bowl in 1965. He is desperate to meet his rock hero, though Lennon wants to see Elvis before the rest of the band do that night. They spend a day together to make it happen that will forever change their lives. The film and its locations have a personal connection to Rosman.
Rosman told Variety, “One day in 1965, I found the Beatles were right next door to my house, and this became the launching point for a movie about my youth, my love of music, the 60’s and a very close call I had with my hero — John Lennon. The Beatles remain as relevant and popular as ever, and Lennon continues to be a huge fascination and draw all over the world. In a time when social consciousness is being reignited by changes in Washington, a look back at the ’60s and John Lennon is as timely as ever.”
