Killing Bono Rocks Out Onto Blu-ray on August 7, 2012

Director Nick Hamm’s comedy ‘Killing Bono,’ starring Ben Barnes, Robert Sheehan and Krysten Ritter, is set to hit Blu-ray on August 7. The film, which was written by Dick Clement, Ian La Frenais and Simon Maxwell, is based on musician and music critic Neil McCormick’s acclaimed 2003 memoir, ‘I Was Bono’s Doppelganger.’

‘Killing Bono’ follows Neil (played by Barnes) and his brother Ivan (portrayed by Sheehan) as they strive to achieve fame as a rock ‘n’ roll band. The only problem is that Neil and Ivan are competing against Bono (played by Martin McCann), and the rest of the members of U2, who they attended school with. While Ivan has come to terms with U2?s achievements, and doesn’t mind accepting help from Bono, Neil refuses to garner success off of someone he perceives to be his greatest rival.
