For quite a while now, Al Pacino has been attached to Imagine, a John Lennon infused drama being put together by writer/director Dan Fogelman. However production has been delayed, partly due to casting issues, as while Steve Carell was set to play Pacino’s son, he dropped out.
Now things are moving forward again, with Deadline reporting that Pacino has been confirmed for the film and he’s been joined by Jeremy Renner and Julianne Moore. Pacino will play an aging rock star who decides to turn his life around after discovering a letter John Lennon wrote to him. He sets out to track down the son (Jeremy Renner) he has never met. Julianne Moore will play the manager of a small New Jersey motel the rocker moves into.
The current plan is for production to kick off sometime between April and May of next year.
