Jim Sheridan Supports Free U2

Director and friend of the band:

“If you give something away to 500 million people, I suppose at least three people are always going to complain,” he told the Diary.

There’s an interesting tidbit at the end of the article:

He (Jim Sheridan) is also in talks with American station HBO about making a small-screen version of his Oscar-nominated movie In America, telling the story of struggling Irish emigrants in New York.

An HBO series based on the story would be great.
