What's cooler than a Beatles bio-pic? 4 Beatles biopic

THE BEATLES: (Singing) Ob-la-di, ob-la-da...

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez. What's cooler than a Beatles biopic made by an Academy Award-winning director? Four Beatles biopics. According to Dateline (ph), Sam Mendes is set to direct four movies about the Fab Four, with each film focusing on a band member's point of view. While they say "All You Need Is Love," these films also got the blessings of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and the estates of John Lennon and George Harrison so that it can all (singing) come together. No, not right now. Later - you know, when the films come out. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
