Because what we really need is ANOTHER FUCKING MOVIE about John Lennon, Brad Pitt has reportedly received Yoko Ono’s blessing to produce and star in a biopic based on his life story. I realize that St. Angie Jo regularly farts out the melody to “Imagine,” but that’s still not a sign that Brad is the right one to play John Lennon in any medium. Not ever.
A source tells The Daily Star (I know, I knoooow) that Brad plans to master the Liverpool accent and sing all of the songs himself. The source went on to say, “Brad already has a writer working on the script. And Yoko has given the project her blessing so long as it’s true to John’s life.”
The “source” probably heard that Brad Pitt once stared at The Beatles picture on Apple’s website for more than 15 seconds and so they went with it. But if this is true, then Yoko has some serious explaining to do. If Brad dropped 50lbs by going on the St. Angie Jo Diet, he still wouldn’t come close to looking like John Lennon. Personally, I’d rather see a John Lennon biopic starring Maddox as both Yoko AND John.
