New Poster For Killing Bono
NB: Empire does not condone U2 murder
He's almost unrecognisable here, but that is Ben Barnes, aka Prince Caspian, getting his rock on in Killing Bono. Yes, there's a new rock story about to hit our screens, and we've got the exclusive new poster here.
The story sees Neil McCormick (Barnes) and his brother Ivan (Robert Sheehan) determined to succeed as rock stars. The complication is that Neil's mate Paul landed the singing role in school band The Hype, a band that was soon renamed U2, with Paul rebranding himself "Bono". While Neil and Ivan remain determined to follow their more succesful mates to London and find their own stardom, they remain in the shadow of the Irish colossi.
It's all directed by Nick Hamm of The Hole (the Keira Knightley film, not the recent Joe Dante one) and also stars Krysten Ritter and Pete Postlethwaite. Killing Bono is out on April 1 next year, assuming they're not pulling our leg.
