Star Movies to air true story on assassination of John Lennon

Mumbai: On 14 November Star Movies will air Chapter 27, a true story about assassination of music legend, John Lennon at 10.55 pm.

On December 8, 1980 Mark David Chapman shocked the world by murdering the beloved purveyor of peace, 40-year old musician and activist, John Lennon, outside the Dakota, his New York apartment building. Chapman’s motives were fabricated from pure delusion, in one instant, an anonymous, mentally unstable 25-year old, socially awkward Beatles fan who had fluctuated between idealizing Lennon and being overcome with a desire to kill him –altered the course of history.

Jared Leto, 60 pounds heavier for the role, bears an uncanny physical resemblance to the real Chapman, who to this day, is incarcerated in Attica Prison, on a guilty plea.
