UPDATE: There’s a great scoop in this morning’s London Daily Mail that Liam Gallagher, former front-man of Oasis, has optioned a book about the break-up of The Beatles. The Longest Cocktail Party charts the rise and fall of Apple Records. Its author, Richard DiLello, was a former employee. Gallagher is developing the Beatles movie with Revolution Films, Brit director Michael Winterbottom’s production company and his regular producer Andrew Eaton (The Killer Inside Me). Oasis, to my ears, have always sounded like the Fab Four anyway. There’s no screenplay yet nor director attached. I wonder who’s going to play John, Paul, George and Ringo. And it’s not going to be much of a film unless Revolution can persuade the Michael Jackson estate/Sony to license those Beatles songs. That sounds like a long and winding road.
