Bono And Izzard Take On Beatles Film

U2 rocker BONO and transvestite funnyman EDDIE IZZARD are set to star alongside EVAN RACHEL WOOD in new musical ACROSS THE UNIVERSE - a movie plotted around songs by THE BEATLES.

The film will chart the adventures of a young British man who heads to America during the Vietnam war in search of his father.

And Bono, who sang alongside SIR PAUL McCARTNEY at the Live 8 charity extravaganza, is keen to make his acting debut in the film.

THE AVENGERS star Izzard, is similarly excited about the project which has been created by the writers of 1980s British TV hit AUF WIEDERSEHEN PET.
