Al Pacino plays a Rock Star in new film ‘Imagine’


Al Pacino joins Julianne Moore, Jeremy Renner

Al Pacino plays a rock star in a new film ‘Imagine’ alongside Julianne Moore and Jeremy Renner, and directed by Dan Fogelman. Pacino’s character is an aging rocker who discovers a letter written to him 45 years prior by John Lennon, which he had never seen before.

He decides to change his life of decadence, playing old tunes and living with a very very young girlfriend, to head off on a path of rediscovering his passion for music and to find the son he has never known. Along the tough journey he experiences friendship, love and some harsh realities.

Dan Fogelman is very passionate about ‘Imagine’ and has said “Every writer has ‘that one project’ … the one they feel so strongly about that they can’t bear to turn it over to anyone else,” Fogelman said. “For me, that project is Imagine. It was a career highlight simply to get a script of mine into Al Pacino’s hands. To have him read it, and then want to star in it – it’s five steps past career highlight. And now, to have Julianne Moore and Jeremy join the fray … it’s beyond my wildest dreams. I’ve been hiding in my house for the past few weeks out of fear that someone would pinch me. We are going to make a very special film here.”

The movie will begin filming in April 2013.
