Bono to produce film about 70s cover bands starring Liam Neeson

U2 front man Bono is constantly busy - if he isn't touring the world with U2, he's busy with humanitarian work - and now he's found another film project to produce.

According to Variety, Bono will produce the film The Virgin of Las Vegas which features actor Liam Neeson as an ageing singer during the 70s cover bands craze

The film will be set around the world of show bands, the Irish pop culture craze from the early, pre-television rock 'n' roll era, when covers bands attracted large followings. Neeson will star as an ageing singer drinking his time away in Las Vegas until he "finds his life turned on its head following the arrival of a mysterious stranger", according to Variety.
Liam Neeson has just got back to work after the tragic death of his wife, actress Natasha Richardson, and will next be seen in the remakes of Clash of the Titans and The A-Team, as well as the third Chronicles of Narnia film and the title role in Steven Spielberg's biopic, Lincoln.

Meanwhile Bono is currently working with The Edge on the extravagant Broadway musical based on Spiderman, Turn Off the Dark.
