The stars of the 1994 film recently got together for a read through of the new West End production, which is still classed as being in the "developmental stage" and is being co-produced by the movie's writer and director IAIN SOFTLEY.

Dorff, who played 'Fifth Beatle' STUART SUTCLIFFE, and Harte, who portrayed JOHN LENNON, will be joined by Backbeat stars GARY BAKEWELL, CHRIS O'NEILL and SCOTT WILLIAMS - who make up the rest of the band as SIR PAUL McCARTNEY, GEORGE HARRISON and PETE BEST.
