Ron Howard has been tapped to direct a new Beatles documentary.
The documentary, authorized for Apple Records, will be based on the first part of the Beatles' career, before they retired from concerts and touring.
The film will be produced with the full cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon, and Olivia Harrison.
“I am excited and honored to be working with Apple and the White Horse team on this astounding story of these four young men who stormed the world in 1964. Their impact on popular culture and the human experience cannot be exaggerated,” said Howard.
The film is tentatively scheduled for release in late 2015.
