While U2 continues work on its next album, the group's friends in Boyzone are apparently eyeing Bono to play a major supporting role in a film about the Irish boy band.
According to MTV Europe, Boyzone plans on making a film about the group that would be similar to the Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night" (a movie also aped by the Spice Girls in its critically savaged 1997 film "Spice World") and wants Bono to play the group's manager.
Boyzone previously hooked up with Bono last year when it made a cameo appearance in the video for U2's most recent single, "The Sweetest Thing".
No word yet on when the planned Boyzone feature film might start shooting, but we'll keep you posted.
