In the film actors portraying the young Dublin band will perform the song live.
“Killing Bono” is a semi-autobiographical tale that follows the Neil & Ivan McCormick who were contemporary musical rivals of Bono and the boys.

The movie is based on Neil McCormick’s memoir “I was Bono’s Doppelganger” but no release date has been set for the US.
