Yesterday to arrive in India on July 12
NEW DELHI: Yesterday, a film inspired by The Beatles and directed by Academy Award-winning director Danny Boyle, will release in India on July 12.
Based on Jack Barth's story, the film's screenplay has been penned by Richard Curtis.
"One of our producers came to me with Jack Barth's idea, a story about a musician who remembers The Beatles' music in a world where no one else does. I loved the idea, and at that point told them I didn't want to read the script…as I would like a crack at it myself," Curtis said in a statement.
"I went away and wrote a film based on that simple-but-brilliant idea. So, whilst the extraordinary premise is Jack's, the script and shape of the story are mine."
The film stars actor Himesh Patel in the lead as Jack Malik alongside actor Lily James, singer and songwriter Ed Sheeran and Kate McKinnon.
Yesterday is set to release across theatres in India on July 12 by Universal Pictures International India.
The film's storyline takes you to a place where one day everyone knew The Beatles. However, today, only Jack remembers their songs.
