The rock ‘n roll comedy will go out on VoD in October and arrive in theatres the following month.

Killing Bono premiered in Seattle earlier in the summer and is directed by Nick Hamm.

Ben Barnes stars alongside Robert Sheehan, Krysten Ritter, Martin McCann and Pete Postlethwaite in what the distributor says was the late actor’s final performance.

Dick Clement, Ian La Frenais and Simon Maxwell wrote the story based on Neil McCormick’s memoir Killing Bono: I am Bono’s Doppelganger. Hamm produced with Ian Flooks, Mark Huffam and Piers Tempest.

XLrator Media head Barry Gordon brokered the deal with Samantha Horley from SALT Company International and Alexis Garcia from WME Global on behalf of the filmmakers.
