Earlier this year, it was announced that director Sam Mendes planned to take on not one, but four separate biopics about The Beatles. Each film will focus on a specific member to give four different viewpoints, telling "interconnected stories" about the evolution of one of the world's most famous bands. And now there are unconfirmed reports about who's set to play The Fab Four.

According to ScreenRant, the project has cast four young stars as its leads: Harris Dickinson (Beach RatsThe King's ManTriangle of SadnessWhere the Crawdads SingThe Iron Claw) as John Lennon; Paul Mescal (Normal People, AftersunAll of Us Strangers, Gladiator 2) as Paul McCartney; Barry Keoghan (DunkirkThe Killing of a Sacred DeerThe BatmanThe Banshees of InisherinSaltburn) as Ringo Starr; and Charlie Rowe (Rocketman) as George Harrison. As Stereogum points out, each actor is between 27 and 31, which is roughly the same ages The Beatles members were when they broke up. The rumor has yet to be confirmed by Sony, the studio that's helming the ambitious project.

Production for the four movies is set to begin in 2025, with the plan to release them throughout the course of 2027.
