There are plenty of musical acts that one finds themselves having an intense desire to destroy. However, one man actually had a pretty good reason to want another musician dead and that's Neil McCormick. The film Killing Bono chronicles McCormick's story from his book of the same name which recounts his time spent in school with the members of super-group U2 including frontman Bono as he rose to rock colossus and world dignitary. Now we have the first trailer for the film starring Ben Barnes which focuses on McCormick's feverish 10-year quest to emulate Bono's success in a series of different bands. See it below!
Watch the first official trailer for Nick Hamm's Killing Bono here:
Killing Bono is a rock' n' roll comedy about two Irish brothers struggling to forge their path through the 1980's music scene, whilst the meteoric rise to fame of their old school pals U2 only serves to cast them deeper into the shadows. Nick Hamm is directing from a Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais written script. Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian) is leading the cast along with Krysten Ritter ("Breaking Bad"), Robert Sheehan (Season of the Witch), Martin McCann (Hollow), Jason Byrne and the final on-screen appearance of the late Pete Postlethwaite. The film hits theaters on November 4th.
