U2 Can Be In The Movies

U2’s Bono and The Edge have confirmed that they’re working with John Carney, the Dublin-born director of the 2007 musical movie ‘Once,’ on ‘Sing Street,’ a new musical film based on Carney’s childhood.

The film will be loosely based around elements of Carney’s youth, the central character being a boy who uses music to help deal with the changes in his life that take him from a private school to the inner city.

In January, U2 won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song for ‘Ordinary Love,’ the song they wrote for the Nelson Mandela biopic ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.’ At the acceptance speech, they spoke of how their own meetings with Mandela had informed the song.

No further word yet, though, on the band’s long-awaited 13th studio album. Rumours that it may be put back to a 2015 release were recently denied by U2’s spokesperson, who said that it’s still on course to appear this year.
