|Film about Brian Epstein in the works|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Monday, 12/15/08 7:17 am] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
There are at least five "fifth" Beatles, Stuart Sutcliffe, who left in 1961, Pete Best, the drummer replaced by Ringo, Neil Aspinall, their long-time business manager, George Martin, their producer, and Brian Epstein, their equally famous manager.
Now a film about Brian Epstein, who died in 1967, is planned for next year, with a script by the Broadway producer Vivek Tiwary.
Don't expect too many shocks, though. Tiwary believes Epstein died of an accidental, not deliberate, overdose of drugs. He also does not hold to the rumour that he slept with John Lennon.
(From Richard Brooks' column in the Sunday Times.)
