Vivek J - Filmmaker Secures Rights To Use Beatles Songs In Brian Epstein Biopic

Filmmaker Vivek J. Tiwary has scored a Hollywood first after securing the rights to early BEATLES songs for his upcoming Brian Epstein biopic.

His movie about the Fab Four's manager marks the first time a moviemaker has ever secured rights to include Beatles songs in a film about the band.

Tiwary, whose movie will be an adaptation of his own upcoming graphic novel, titled The Fifth Beatle, has signed a deal with Sony/Atv bosses to use songs from the John Lennon/Paul MCCartney music catalogue.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Tiwary, a lifetime fan of the Fab Four and Epstein, has been given unprecedented access to the Beatles vaults.

His graphic novel about the legendary svengali is set for release next year (13).
