ComingSoon.net shares a press release from Lions Gate Films, and the short version is this: A documentary entitled "The U.S. vs. John Lennon" is getting ready to roll into production, thanks to the fine folks at LGF.

"The film, which has the support and cooperation of Yoko Ono, covers the period 1966-1976 and tells the story of John Lennon‘s transformation from beloved musical artist to anti-war activist to iconic inspiration for peace, and recounts the story of the U.S. Government’s efforts to silence him. The U.S. vs. John Lennon will also show that this was not just an isolated episode in American history, but that the issues and struggles of that era remain relevant today."

Scheduled for release some time late next year, the documentary project has Lions Gate executive Kevin Beggs pretty excited: "Lions Gate is thrilled to be instrumental in bringing this momentous story to light … This is the kind of film that exemplifies the daring, high quality entertainment produced by Lions Gate throughout its divisions."
