Agreed, not a Bono story but a U2 story.

What about a theme of "how we figured out how to use our music to bring people together?" And it touches on both them bringing audiences together and also learning how to grow together as not just a band but a brotherhood.

They could set up the problem around October, where they are thinking of calling it quits because the band doesn't (seem to) fit with their faith. "Is rock and roll just vanity or can it be something really worthwhile?"

They continue by trying to make music that cares. They have some good night where they connected with the audience in special ways and vow to continue that.

They make it big with JT. The spotlight is hard. There are problems with each other, at home, etc.

They chop down the JT and Bono put on a mask. They are living it high for them, Adam is having a hard time, Edge is having a hard time, Bono is being a p****. They make music wondering about how to separate the superficial bubblegum from what really matters.

They continue to find moments. Sarajevo is a big one. Maybe there are little ones, profound little moments.

Climax is Streets at the Super Bowl, using their magic to bring an entire nation and its friends together in a time of significant crisis. Yes, rock and roll can transcend.
I agree that U2 as a family would need to be a major focus of the film.

"Ordinary Love" is a great theme.  I have ideas re. the scenes and would be willing to write a screenplay.

Please, No! As a fan since '83, I have no interest in seeing this, we all know the story, we know the guys.

We have the great music, we don't need a cheesy movie.

Agreed. U2's story doesn't appear to hold much of interest to anyone outside of dedicated fans. I'm not trying to call them boring. I'm just saying that they don't really have much in the way of juicy drama that people seem to crave.

I'm going to endorse this sentiment.

The only U2 movies we need are Under a Blood Red Sky, Rattle and Hum, Sydney, Mexico City, Go Home, etc.

There will most certainly be a movie made once Bono is gone.
