Ron Howard is set to direct a new documentary about the touring lives of The Beatles, made in partnership by his own Imagine Entertainment company, the band’s Apple Corps and White Horse Pictures.

The film will follow The Beatles’ relatively short stint as a touring band, beginning with their first shows in Liverpool in 1961, to their first European tour in 1963, up to their show in San Francisco in 1966.

Howard said: “I am excited and honoured to be working with Apple and the White Horse team on this astounding story of these four young men who stormed the world in 1964. Their impact on popular culture and the human experience cannot be exaggerated”.
