    Yoko Ono is producing a film that will depict her complex relationship with Beatle John Lennon, documenting the couple's love story and peace activism.

    The as-yet untitled film will be produced by Ono, who will also oversee the project. The Oscar-nominated screenwriter Anthony McCarten, who was critically lauded for "Theory Of Everything", his take on the relationship between Stephen and Jane Hawking, will write the script. His upcoming work includes the Winston Churchill drama Darkest Hour, starring Gary Oldman. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael De Lurca, the man behind "The Social Network", "Moneyball" and "Captain Phillips", will produce. In a statement, De Lurca said that the plot will "focus on ripe and relevant themes of love, courage and activism in the U.S. — with the intention of inspiring today's youth to stand up for and have a clear vision for the world they want."

    During their 11-year marriage, Lennon and Ono collaborated on multiple creative projects, including Lennon's bold debut solo album The Plastic Ono Band and his swan song; 1980's Double Fantasy. In an interview with Rolling Stone, back in 1971, Lennon commented that he felt that he and Ono had a responsibility to "produce peace."

    Lennon's life as a youth was previously brought to the big screen by Sam Taylor-Johnson in the movie Nowhere Boy, where he was played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Speaking at the time, Ono was supportive of the completed movie, and was reportedly "flabbergasted" at how good it was.

    Ono's most recent artistic release was her track "Hell in Paradise" — a dance track with typically arresting visuals. Check out the wonderful madness below.
