Mendes will direct the four theatrical feature films – one from each band member’s point of view – to tell the story of The Beatles.

SPE will finance and distribute worldwide with full theatrical windows in 2027. The details of the dating cadence of the films will be shared closer to release

Mendes will also 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 honoured 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 Mendes.
