Lenny Abrahamson has responded to reports he’s making a Hollywood film about Bono’s life.
The 53-year-old directed the hit series Normal People, as well as the highly acclaimed 2015 film Room.
Earlier this week, it was reported that the Oscar nominated director was hoping to turn the life of U2 frontman Bono into a biopic – focusing on his early life and his early relationships with bandmates The Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr.
Taking to Twitter today, Lenny denied the rumours, writing: “Not sure where this came from but it’s the first I heard of it.”
Not sure where this came from but it’s the first I heard of it. I’ve never even considered doing anything remotely like this. Not a thing, as the young people say: https://t.co/Bwe0NLvOJh

“I’ve never even considered doing anything remotely like this. Not a thing, as the young people say.”
Lenny Abrahamson was nominated for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series for Normal People at this year’s Emmy Awards, but missed out to Maria Schrader who directed Unorthodox.
The virtual awards ceremony took place last month, with fans left disappointed after Normal People was snubbed despite being nominated for four awards.
