Celebrity stalker pic wraps shooting

London-based Picture Players Ltd. has wrapped shooting on a feature film examining the mindset of Mark David Chapman, who gunned down John Lennon outside the Dakota in New York 25 years ago today.

“The Killing of John Lennon,” written and directed by Andrew Piddington, is being financed by a group of British real estate investors, including Picture Players’ Rod Pearson.

Film, shot over the course of three years in Hawaii, Georgia and Gotham, is described as a gritty and imagistic look at the mindset of a celebrity stalker.

Rakha Singh is producing, while Pearson is exec producing. It’s the first film on Picture Players’ slate.

Piddington has directed two features, “Shuttlecock,” starring Alan Bates, and “The Fall,” starring Jurgen Prochnow and Craig Sheffer.

Next year, Lions Gate Films will release docu “The U.S. vs. John Lennon,” which focuses on the musician’s work as a peace activist.
