21 Mar – Netflix is set to collaborate with J.J. Abrams and his production company, Bad Robot to develop a series about legendary rock band, U2.
The show, currently untitled, is revealed to be in the early stages of development, and is written by Oscar-nominated writer, Anthony McCarten, the same man who wrote the Freddie Mercury biopic, "Bohemian Rhapsody".
It is noted that several music-themed biopics are currently undergoing following the success of "Bohemian Rhapsody" and the 2019 Elton John-related film, "Rocketman".
Aside from the upcoming Baz Luhrmann's Elvis Presley biopic, among other music icons who will have their own films include Bob Marley, Whitney Houston, and Madonna - the latter who will be thoroughly involved in the project.
Formed in 1976 in Dublin, Ireland, U2 - led by frontman Bono, lead guitarist the Edge, bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen Jr. - released 14 studio albums throughout the years, won 22 Grammys and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.
