Representatives for the upcoming John Lennon biopic Nowhere Man have said that a lawsuit which aims to block the film has no merit. Writer Geoffrey Giuliano has claimed that the 2007 Julia Baird memoir on which the movie has based itself uses material from the 1986 book John Lennon, My Brother that the pair wrote together.

A Veteran rock biographer is furious at John Lennon's half-sister, Julia Baird, claiming she used material from a 1986 book they co-wrote about Lennon in another memoir without giving him any credit or money.

"There's only one reason she did it, and that's to screw me out of my share," Geoffrey Giuliano -- who wrote "John Lennon, My Brother" with Baird -- told Page Six from his home in Bangkok. "The vast majority of the research in her 2007 book, »

Lennon's Sister Facing Lawsuit Over Film

26 March 2009 5:15 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

A film about the early life of Beatles legend John Lennon has been thrown into jeopardy - the star's sister is facing legal action over the book on which the movie is based.

Lennon's sister Julia Baird collaborated with Geoffrey Giuliano on John Lennon, My Brother, which was published in the late 1980s.

Baird went on to pen her own book, 2007's Imagine This: Growing Up With My Brother John Lennon.

But Giuliano has accused Baird of basing her biography on his previous research into Lennon's life.

And now he is set to launch a legal battle over new movie Nowhere Boy - which is based on Baird's book - claiming he is entitled to 50 per cent of her earnings from the picture.

He says, "In doing my own research, I filled in a lot of blanks for her. More than half the material in the book is a result of my research.

"Additional information in Imagine This was uncovered by me in my original research. I was the person who conceptualised the original book."

The movie will star Kristin Scott Thomas and Anne-Marie Duff and is set for release in 2010. »
