Brian Epstein - Brian Epstein's Life To Be Made Into Biopic
Legendary Beatles manager Brian Epstein's life is to be turned into a biopic, which will unearth secrets about the gay svengali.
Broadway producer Vivek Tiwary has been developing the project, titled The Fifth Beatle, for years, but now has the financing to officially start work on the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
And, in a first for a film about the Fab Four, Tiwary has secured the rights to use a handful of Beatles songs for the soundtrack.
He tells the publication, "My guess is we'll use six to 10 Beatles songs. We have the ability to use All You Need is Love, A Day in The Life..., Sgt. Pepper, Yesterday, Eleanor Rigby, Help and You've Got To Hide Your Love Away.
"It's definitely possible that You've Got to Hide Your Love Away is about Brian."
Epstein died of a drug overdose in 1967.
No casting has been announced for the Epstein role; David Angus played the manager in 1991's The Hours & Times and Rory Kinnear portrayed Epstein in last year's (10) Lennon Naked.
