Yesterday , I found an announcement at Variety about Jonas Akerlund being about to direct a movie about the life of Brian Epstein, called "Midas Man - the Brian Epstein story" for release in 2021. About this film: https://midasmanmovie.com

I got blisters on my fingers!

I thought George was meant to be Ringo.

Sounds like a good way to get a biopic about all the 4 together without focusing on one individual Beatle. 

Yet...the movie will end probably around Brians death so we'll not see anything from 1968 to 1970. At least from what I'm assuming.

Filming actually began in Liverpool in October but was shut down because, depending on whose version you believe, they were unhappy with Jonas Akerlund as director, or he had clashes with other work that meant he couldn't continue. There are rumours he may be suing the producers, which makes the former seem more likely.

Don't know if they've reached an agreement and he continues as director, or if another director has been brought in, but filming restarted in London in late November and – after a break for Christmas – will resume in January in Los Angeles.

Myself, @KyleKartan, I expect it will be a biopic about Brian rather than a sideways way of doing a Beatles biopic. Obviously the Beatles will feature, but the focus will be very much Brian – and Brian was about more than just the Beatles. Rosie Day is said to have a big role as Cilla Black (one of Brian's favourites among his stable), for example.

Well, We can see who is who when they are all in the photo, that's a good thing buuuut there is something wrong... maybe, they look too "clean". When they recorded, they weren't in suits, they were decontracted, I think , it's that bugs me. I hope they will not reprensented during the whole movie like models. I want real Beatles not the cover magazine version.ahdn_paul_01

I think, the actor looks quite good in this photo ! brian-epstein
