In an interview with Rolling Stone, the director said, the guys “already have been extremely helpful in discussing the musical aspect of the film and what the sound is going to be like.”
According to Carney, the film, titled Sing Street, will be set in the Eighties. “Obviously U2 were extremely prolific then, so they’ll bring that, and they’ve just been great sounding boards,” he explained. “Bono has been very helpful with character and story as I’ve sort of pitched the project to him over the last few months.”
The film is not based on Bono’s own experiences, but just shows how good of a storyteller the frontman is.
