Figured it was time to start a topic for this movie. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Benedict Cumberbatch will play Brian in the movie version of "The Fifth Beatle"! Sherlock's Paul McGuigan will direct.

I'm really excited now!

Edit: This a year-old article that was posted on FB as if it were new, so I have no idea what's happening with this film now, sorry.

So a year after that article was posted, they're going in a different direction. From The Examiner:

Peyton Reed will direct “The Fifth Beatle,” the film adaptation of the recently released New York Times best-selling graphic novel chronicling the final years of The Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein, the production company announced Dec. 4. Reed's past directing credits include the films “Bring It On,” “Yes Man,” “Down With Love” and “The Break-Up” and episodes of the TV series “The Goodwin Games” and “New Girl.”

More at the source. [x-posted at the news thread]

Examiner blurb:

Speaking of projects: Remember the Brian Epstein movie supposedly in the works with Tom Hanks? It seems to have quietly disappeared. Meanwhile, "The Fifth Beatle" movie, taken from the comic novel and written by Vivek Tiwary, is still on the boards.

For those going to Comic-Con, there'll be a Fifth Beatle panel Sunday:

One of the hottest graphic novels of 2013, The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story, is now one of the most highly anticipated films, having secured the approval of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, and Olivia Harrison, along with unprecedented access to the entire Beatles music catalog. Fifth Beatle writer and producer Vivek J. Tiwary (Green Day's American Idiot) introduces a series of very special guests for a discussion of The Fifth Beatle's development, and breaking news. Panel moderated byPatrick Reed (Depth Of Field Magazine).
Sunday July 27, 2014 10:00am – 11:00am

Finally I e been waiting to hear something about the movie. I know I could have researched it more, but now I am in the mood.

If children are studying the 20th century, I'm in their text books.
