Sam Mendes’ Beatles Biopics Have Reportedly Found The Cast

The cast for Sam Mendes’ highly anticipated Beatles biopics appears to have come together, according to reports from ScreenRant and Vogue. These reports, originally from The InSneider, suggest that Mendes has found his Fab Four. Paul Mescal is set to play Paul McCartney, a rumour circulating since May. Now, it seems Harris Dickinson will portray John Lennon, Barry Keoghan will take on the role of Ringo Starr, and Charlie Rowe will step into George Harrison’s shoes.

As of now, Sony, the distributor for Mendes’ films, hasn’t confirmed or denied these casting rumours.

Back in February, Mendes announced his ambitious project: four biopic films, each from the perspective of one of the Beatles. These individual stories will intertwine to narrate the journey of the greatest band in history.

This project marks a historic moment, as it’s the first time Apple Corps Ltd. and The Beatles – including Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and the families of John Lennon and George Harrison – have granted full life story and music rights for a scripted film.

The films are set for a global release in 2027. The band teased in a statement that the release schedule will be “innovative and groundbreaking,” with more details to come as the release date approaches.

In other Beatles news, Ringo Starr recently expressed his approval for the newly restored ‘Let It Be’ documentary, despite his previous comments about the film’s lack of joy. Originally difficult to obtain for the past fifty years, NME exclusively revealed last month that Disney+ will be releasing a restored version of the 1970 documentary.
