Rock 'n' roll comedy KILLING BONO stars as two Irish brothers, Neil (Ben Barnes) and Ivan (Robert Sheehan) McCormick trying to follow in the footsteps of their old school pals U2 who had already risen out of obscurity and made it to the top.

Moving to London in their search for opportunity and success, the music industry thwarts their every move in stark contrast to U2's surge to fame.

Just as the brothers manage to gain a foothold in the industry, Ivan discovers the shocking truth behind Neil's rivalry with U2. Ultimately it threatens to destroy everything and Neil sees his failure is directly linked to Bono's (Martin McCann) success.
