Whether you’ve always wanted to know the origins of Bono and his gang or just don’t care, JJ Abrams will do a series dedicated to U2. With or Without You !
According to The Hollywood Reporter, his company Bad Robot Productions is currently in the process of developing a scripted biographical series, centering on the legendary rock band. It will be produced by Warner Bros. Television for Netflix.
Why Demimonde, the great SF series by JJ Abrams, is still not filmed?
Still untitled, this series U2 will be written by author Anthony McCarten, who recently wrote Bohemian Rhapsody (in 2018), the biopic dedicated to Queen. He is currently working on the one on Whitney Houston, titled I Wanna Dance With Somebody.
U2 should also be involved in this project which has just started its development. We can’t wait to find out who will play the young Bono, who formed the group in 1976, in Ireland, with guitarist Edge, bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen Jr.
