Oasis Frontman To Develop Beatles Movie image
For years people blamed Oasis for being Beatles posers with their bowl cut haircuts and Fab Four-ish music. Then everyone forgot about Oasis because they stopped making songs anyone wanted to listen to. Now Liam Gallagher appears ready to keep the Beatles comparisons alive for a bit longer. The Hollywood Reporter has it that the Oasis frontman is working with Revolution Films to adapt Richard DiLelloís memoir, The Longest Cocktail Party, into a feature film.

The memoir is about DiLelloís time spent as a gopher for The Beatlesí Apple Records label during the late 1960ís. It gives an inside look at the groupís dealings with agents, managers and producers, their relationships both marital and extra-marital, the crazy parties, and the eventual breakup of the band.

Gallagher currently owns the rights to the book and, though by all accounts heís a huge pompous ass, thereís no denying the guy worships The Beatles. He even looks like some weird, early Lennon and McCartney offspring mash up. Heíll work with producer Adam Eaton and director Michael Winterbottom (A Mighty Heart) to develop the film which will certainly shed more light on how truly crazy all The Beatles were at the time.
