Beatles music will be allowed in Brian Epstein biopic


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: On the heels of a story that Hollywood’s actively seeking out fresh musical biopics to meet audience demand comes news of a project tied to the biggest band in the world.

Brian Epstein, manager of The Beatles and official “fifth Beatle” (according to Paul McCartney), will receive the full film bio treatment in a project that’s allowed full use the band’s music catalogue, THR reports. Stage producer Vivek Tiwary, who will produce the film, told the trade, “”I have signed and fully executed a deal with Sony/ATV, who control the Lennon/McCartney music catalog, and I’m proud to report we will have Beatles music in our film. … My guess is we’ll use six to 10 Beatles songs.”

The biopic reportedly will focus on Epstein’s closeted homosexuality, which he hid from the mainstream media even as the band he managed was blowing up. It’s unclear whether Tiwary will direct “The Fifth Beatle” or farm it out, but he said he’d like to see production start sooner rather than later.
