The official trailer for the upcoming comedy ‘Killing Bono’ has been released by its distributor, Arc Entertainment. The film, which was directed by Nick Hamm and written by Dick Clement, Ian La Frenais and Simon Maxwell, is based on the true story of rock critic Neil McCormick.
‘Killing Bono,’ which was met with critical acclaim when it was released in the U.K. last spring, follows two Irish brothers struggling to forge their path in the 1980s music scene. However, the emergence of their old school friends U2 only pushed the two brothers back into obscurity.
Scheduled for an October 5, 2011 VOD U.S. release, with a November 4 theatrical release to follow, ‘Killing Bono’ stars Ben Barnes, Robert Sheehan, Krysten Ritter and Peter Serafinowicz. It was produced by Hamm, Ian Flooks, Mark Huffam and Piers Tempest.
