Ben Barnes
Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Dorian Gray) has been announced to star in ‘I Was Bono’s Doppelganger’, a comedy film from director Nick Hamm (Godsend) that is based on Neil McCormack’s autobiography of the same name.

The production will star Barnes alongside previously announced Irish actor Robert Sheehan (Cherrybomb, Summer of the Flying Saucer). The duo will play brothers Neil and Ivan McCormick who formed a band in Dublin in the late 70s - but found themselves constantly compared to their classmates’ band, namely U2. The project is set for pre-production in the coming weeks with an expected start date in early 2010. Locations in Northern Ireland, Dublin and London will be used.

‘I Was Bono’s Doppelganger’ is being adapted by the same writers who penned ‘The Commitments’, Dick Clement and Ian la Frenais and will be produced by Mark Huffam from Generator Entertainment (Mickybo and Me, executive producer of The Hours), Nick Hamm, U2’s former agent Ian Flooks (Confetti) and The Salt Company’s Piers Tempest (Like Minds).
