The Fifth Beatle Movie Coming

(hennemusic) "The Fifth Beatle", a biopic about the band's manager Brian Epstein, will start production next year and will become the first-ever feature film about The Beatles to secure music rights to their songs granting unprecedented access to the Lennon/McCartney music catalog.

Based on Tony Award winning producer Vivek J. Tiwary's recently-released graphic novel of the same name, the project will be directed by Peyton Reed (Bring It On, The Break-Up).

"From the moment I read Vivek's graphic novel, I knew I wanted to be the person to bring Brian's story to the big screen," said Reed. "I'm a lifelong Beatles fan, obviously, but it's Brian's fascinating life that really blew me away and drew me to this project. He's the ultimate outsider who, against all odds, became the ultimate insider. He was responsible for shepherding the most popular artistic expression of "love" in the history of modern culture, and yet he wasn't allowed to express his own love during that time." more on this story
