Bono to Make Movie About Irish Vegas Singer

Ananova, June 20, 2005

 

Bono is developing a new movie about an Irish musican who emigrates to the U.S. to work with a showband in Las Vegas.

The comedy-drama titled A Version of Las Vegas, deals with the attempts by the son the musician abandoned in Ireland when he left his native land in the '60s to track down his father in the gambling capital.

The U2 singer has teamed up with fellow Irishman Barry Devlin to make the movie, according to Variety.

Devlin, an ex member of Horslips and former writer on BBC's Ballykissangel series, previously worked with U2 on television films about the band including the 1998 show The Making of the Movie Rattle and Hum.

Bono previously wrote the screenplay for Million Dollar Hotel, a Mel Gibson-produced movie, released in 2001.
