Bono plays ‘Dr Robert’ in ‘Across The Universe’, a film based on music by The Beatles. It combines live action, animation and puppetry.
‘Across The Universe‘, directed by Julie Taymor, is the story of a Liverpool doc worker (played by Jim Sturgess), who travels to America to find his long lost father. On his way, he meets an American girl (Evan Rachel Wood) and joins the anti-war movement.
All of the musical film’s main characters are named after Beatles songs. Bono’s character is called Dr Robert. Eddie Izzard and Salma Hayek are also in the film.
The film is set for a UK and Ireland release on September 28.
