According to the statement, the director of “American Beauty” will have full access to the life stories and music of The Beatles.

"I'm honored to tell the story of the greatest rock band of all time and excited to challenge the notion of what constitutes a trip to the movies," Mendes said in a statement.

According to Sony Pictures Entertainment executive Tom Rothman, seeing these films in a classic theatrical setting will be an integral part of the experience and will “wow audiences around the world.”

Details about the casting were not specified in the statement, but the news is sure to trigger a flurry of predictions about who could land each Beatle's coveted role.

The Beatles are one of the most influential bands in history, whose genesis dates back to the late 1950s, when McCartney and Lennon first got together in the Quarrymen.

With Harrison and Starr on board under the band name as we know it today, The Beatles released their first single "Love Me Do" in 1962. In 1964, "Beatlemania" was in full swing when the four Britons came to the United States. United to make their now historic appearance on the “Ed Sullivan Show,” and the rest is history.

They released "Let It Be," their last album as a band in 1970, before going their separate ways to pursue solo careers. In 2023, the Beatles' “last” song, “Now & Then,” was released.
