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]
