Maya and Ethan Hawke to Star in New Film About Teen Trying to Lose Her Virginity to George Harrison

Maya and Ethan Hawke will star in a new film centered on Jane, an Alaska teen in 1966 who’s determined is to lose her virginity to George Harrison. Titled Revolver, after The Beatles album of the same name, the movie is being helmed by Finding Nemo co-director Andrew Stanton with a script from Kate Trefry (Stranger Things).

According to Variety, actor-musician Maya Hawke will play Jane, while her real-life dad will star as Jane’s dad. The film takes place in Anchorage, Alaska, where a flight carrying the Beatles to Japan is forced to make an emergency stop and “all hell breaks loose as the unsuspecting residents are consumed by Beatlemania.”

Maya Hawke most recently appeared in Gia Coppola’s latest feature Mainstream, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival, as well as the third season of Stranger Things. She released her debut album Blush earlier this year. Ethan Hawke currently stars in the Showtime limited series The Good Lord Bird, which he also co-wrote and executive produced.
