Liam in the celluloid biz

25 05 2011

Liam Gallagher has put together a script for a movie he wants to make about the Beatles’ Apple years, based on the Longest Cocktail Party: An Insider’s Diary Of The Beatles, Their Million Dollar Apple Empire And Its Wild Rise And Fall.  Mr. Gallagher hopes to take Johnny Depp into tackling the role of Derek Taylor, the Beatles’ famed publicist and Apple mouthpiece.

I’d love to see this movie, if it ever sees the light of day.  I get the feeling, though, it won’t ever get made.  Even if it does, will it have the marketability to appeal to a big budget guy like Depp?  I know the Gallaghers know Johnny, but I’m not sure whether Liam’s owed any favors by him.
