Nowhere Boy, a film about Beatle John Lennon's childhood, has started filming.
The Weinstein Company has purchased the movie, which is two weeks into production, Variety reports.
Nowhere Boy takes its title from The Beatles song 'Nowhere Man' on the Rubber Soul album. It is directed by Sam Taylor, whose previous credits include the Buzzcocks-inspired Love You More.
Aaron Johnson, 19, plays the role of young Lennon. He has previously appeared in The Illusionist as the child version of Ed Norton's character Eisenheim. English Patient star Kristin Scott Thomas portrays Lennon's Aunt Mimi, who helped raise him.
"Nowhere Boy tells the never before seen story of John Lennon's childhood," The Weinstein Company said.
"John Lennon is an ordinary 15-year-old boy on the streets of Liverpool... But life is not simple for John - he grew up in a family of secrets and was raised by his Aunt Mimi from the age of five. When he is suddenly reunited with his mother, Julia, they form an unbreakable bond. A bitter war rages between the two sisters for John's love."

Clint Eastwood has reportedly cast his son in The Human Factor, his upcoming movie about Nelson Mandela and post-apartheid South Africa.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scott Eastwood will join Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon in the project, which has been adapted from the book by John Carlin.
The movie will revolve around the former South African president's attempt to use the national rugby team to fight racial discrimination.
Eastwood's son will play a member of the team, while Damon will portray their captain Francois Piennar. Morgan has been cast as Mandela.
The 22-year-old has previously worked with his father in Gran Torino and Flags Of Our Fathers.

A second sequel to 1987 horror film The Lost Boys has been greenlit by Warner Premiere.
The follow-up to last year's Lost Boys: The Tribe DVD will be penned by Evan Charnov and will again feature Corey Feldman and vampire hunter Edgar Frog, Bloody Disgusting reveals.
Moviehole reports that the film will also feature Jamison Newlander, who will reprise his role from the first film as Edgar's brother Alan.
Newlander was credited in the previous sequel, but appeared only in two alternate endings for the film, while Corey Haim provided a mid-credits cameo scene.

Coca-Cola has announced a new musical collaboration for the third of its 'Happiness Factory' commercials.
The track features Cee-Lo Green from Gnarls Barkley, Patrick Stump from Fall Out Boy, Brendon Urie from Panic At The Disco, Travis McCoy from Gym Class Heroes and singer Janelle Monae.
It was co-produced by Polow Da Don and Butch Walker, who wrote the song with Green.
McCoy said: "I think Coke reaching out to up-and-coming and established artists is a really good move - everyone comes out a winner.
"We as artists get to collaborate with people we look up to and Coca-Cola gets a fresh new song that I think people are going to be really receptive to."
Green added: "Music's marketplace can be very fickle and unforgiving and if you want longevity and you want legend, who better to ask advice from than Coca-Cola?"
Other artists who have performed songs for Coca-Cola in the past include Jack White and Duffy.

He also stars in the film along with Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham and Jet Li.Responding to criticism of the switch, he said: "The anger of the casting of 50 Cent is understandable, but not fair."If a man can communicate in one medium, he can communicate in another if his strengths are brought out and he has the support of well-wishers. So, trust me, the change from Forest Whitaker to 50 Cent is a good one."
