“I went away and wrote a film based on that simple-but-brilliant idea. “One of our producers came to me with Jack Barth’s idea, a story about a musician who remembers The Beatles’ music in a world where no one else does. So, whilst the extraordinary premise is Jack’s, the script and shape of the story are mine,” Curtis said in a statement. Nick Angel, Lee Brazier and Liza Chasin serve as executive producers. I loved the idea, and at that point told them I didn’t want to read the script as I would like a crack at it myself. Advertising

Inspired by The Beatles, the film, with a screenplay by Richard Curtis, is based on Jack Barth’s story.
