Killing Bono Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P85234~Dick Clement~dickclement]] and [[Performer~P98377~Ian La Frenais~ianlafrenais]], co-screenwriters of the hit 1991 music drama [[Feature~V10547~The Commitments~thecommitments]], re-team to contribute to this musical comedy about two brothers who watch their dreams of superstardom go up in flames thanks to their classmate [[Performer~P7314~Bono~bono]] and his band [[Performer~P72339~U2~u2]]. Neil ([[Performer~P504098~Ben Barnes~benbarnes]]) and Ivan McCormick ([[Performer~P628143~Robert Sheehan~robertsheehan]]) are two aspiring musicians with a passion for punk and the drive to become rock legends. They've got big ambitions, but Neil and Ivan have failed to realize that someone else in their social circle is even more determined to succeed than they are. His name is [[Performer~P7314~Bono~bono]] ([[Performer~P535773~Martin McCann~martinmccann]]), and his band [[Performer~P72339~U2~u2]] is about to become one of the biggest rock-and-roll acts of all time. When [[Performer~P7314~Bono~bono]] reveals to Neil that Ivan would make the perfect addition to [[Performer~P72339~U2~u2]], the intense jealousy that follows threatens to drive a wedge between the two brothers who once swore they would take over the world together. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
