Epstein biopic news

A film about legendary Beatles manager Brian Epstein is in the works, and is
expected to be released in 2008 to coincide with the whole Liverpool city of
culture thingummy. The screenplay for the movie, entitled ‘The Fifth
Beatle’, and written by Broadway producer Vivek Tiwary, will not feature any
Beatles music but will portray Epstein’s work through a series of historical
scenes, hallucinations and dream sequences. On the decision to avoid the
band’s music in the film, Tiwary says: “That would overshadow the fact that
I’m trying to tell Brian’s story, not The Beatles story.”
