Liam Gallagher (the frontman formerly of the 1990s Britpop band Oasis and currently of the band Beady Eye) wants to make a movie about the Beatles’ business venture, Apple. He says they’ve finished with the script, and he’s now on the lookout for actors.
Liam Gallagher has revealed he is hoping to persuade Johnny Depp to star in his Beatles biopic as the band’s long time publicist Derek Taylor.
Based on the book The Longest Cocktail Party, by Richard DiLello, the film will focus on the band’s attempts to create a groovy business empire, making records and films and electronic devices, using only their ’60s ideals and overabundant confidence to guide their way. The corporation was run by their press officer, the insouciant Derek Taylor (the band’s long time publicist), and has always been held up as a monument to rock star naivety (not that Apple is doing too badly these days, of course).
Liam told Q magazine:”Derek Taylor was a dude. He’s up there with Lennon.
“The film script is done. It’s gonna blow people’s minds, man. I’m just waiting to find out when we choose the actors.
“I want Johnny Depp to play Derek Taylor. It’s got Johnny Depp written all over it, man.”
‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ star Johnny became friendly with Liam and his brother Noel in the 1990s when he was dating British model Kate Moss and they were in the band Oasis and as he has collaborated on one of their tracks before, Liam could persuade him to take on the role of Taylor.
Liam announced the project at last year’s Cannes Film Festival in partnership with Revolution Films, revealing it traces the band’s journey from their 1967 heyday to their demise in 1970.
