Two-time Tony Award winner Julie Taymor (Frida, Titus) has come on board to direct the musical romance All You Need Is Love, which will feature 18 songs by the Beatles, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The love story about a British boy and an American girl is set against the backdrop of the social upheaval of the 1960s. Although not about the Beatles, the musical will use their songs to drive the narrative, with the actors singing and dancing to the classic tunes.
Production is expected to begin in September for a Thanksgiving 2006 release. The film, written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais (The Commitments), is being produced by Sony-based Revolution Studios.
