Hollywood has decided to make a film of the days leading up to John Lennon's murder with Mark Chapman (Lennon's  murderer) as the main character. Lindsey lohan also stars as a Lennon fan.


The title is "Chapter 27", which I think is a reference to the last chapter in "the catcher in the rye" which Chapman was a fan of and allegedly started reading after killing Lennon.


EDIT: Correction..."Catcher in the rye" only has 26 chapters. So the "27" is a continuiation of sorts.

already there are Beatles fans starting to boycott threads on IMDB because they believe the film will only give what Chapman always wanted...attention.

Should be very interesting. Cant wait to see who plays Lennon (if he actually shows up in the film that is Roll Eyes ).

Poster looks ominous. Has Lennon's glasses cracked on the floor of a sidewalk.

Is this going to be something like "I shot Andy Warhol"? I don't know if I'm interested in a film that focuses on the killer of John Lennon. Would you be interested?

The main reason I'm interested is to see who will play Lennon (if that is called for in the script).
I don't really like the fact that Chapman will be getting the attention he has been craving but who cares...he's in jail where he belongs. He won't beable to enjoy any of his fame.

This will be released in the first month of 2007 at Cannes. A worldwide theatrical release will follow soon afterwards.

Not sure if it will be select theatres or not.

I think the Lennon fans are wrong boycotting because they amplify the effect they want to quench. Ignoring is the best politiics.
A shame, anyway. These Hollywood vultures should be sent in prison with Chapman.

Absolutely. What is there to be learnt from a film like that? The history of a poor idiot killing a gifted man for no reason at all. they won't have my money and my time.

I know you wouldn't give a flying hoot but Yoko approved of the project.

Most people know that Chapman shot Lennon for one main reason: he wanted to be famous.

Fans of Lennon all around the world do not want to give Chapman attention for doing this, which was his personal goal in killing Lennon. All this movie is doing is giving him attention, and I will not be one of the people to spend $7 to give this Chapman character some publicity.

As if Chapman is already known to be the man who shot one of the biggest icons of the 20th century. He already achieved his fame. This little indie film won't raise anymore awareness.

I have to agree. This film will only let those who don't know what happened to John, know what happened and who did it. It'll be like a documentary in some ways.

Would you not watch a film about John Wilkes Booth or Lee Harvey Oswald because it would bring them too much attention?

Yoko and Mccartney once publicly asked for fans not to even mention Chapman's name. I think that's ridiculous. Trying hard to get folks into forgetting a certain somebody for an evil deed just gives that said person more power and gives people more interest in him/her.
Your doing them a favor.

I think Lennon would agree that ignoring history is not the way to go.

And again I don't believe this modest indie flick will garner Chapman anymore attention then he already has.
