    Director Ron Howard will lens a new film documenting The Beatles and their live shows and their live history.

    The film is being made with the cooperation of surviving Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as Beatles widows Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison.

    "What's so intriguing to me is not only the subject, but the context we can bring to it now," Howard said. "Not only can we do a study of these touring years, the narrative of an odyssey, we can look at the significance of the Beatles as individuals -- as musical geniuses, as societal leaders and their effect on global culture. Dramatically it makes a lot of sense and cinematically, we have a chance to offer a unique experience."

    The film will look at the band's initial gigs at the Cavern Club in Liverpool as well as the final public show in San Francisco's Candlestick Park, in 1966.

    Does this sound like a film you want to see?
