White Horse Pictures' Nigel Sinclair, Scott Pascucci and Brian Grazer of Imagine Entertainment are producing with Howard. Apple Corps' Jeff Jones and Jonathan Clyde are serving as executive producers, along with Imagine's Michael Rosenberg and White Horse's Guy East and Nicholas Ferrall. The film is based on the first part of the Beatles' career, from 1962-66, the period in which they toured and captured the world's acclaim."
