The former lead singer Liam Gallagher for the British outfit Oasis is adapting a feature film based on Richard DiLello’s 1973 memoir The Longest Cocktail Party.
Gallagher wants Johnny Depp to play to play Derek Taylor, the Beatles’ publicist at the time, according to Q Magazine.
The book details the Beatles’ final days, exploring their relationship with the Apple Corps. label.
Gallagher said that the script is finished, and is “gonna blow people’s minds.” He added that the part of Taylor’s got Depp “written all over it man.”
We know that Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow was influenced by Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards. But The Beatles, is a different story. I hope Gallagher and his production team can do a Beatles biopic, there aren’t much out there which is strange considering their cultural impact and rock history.
