Liam Gallagher, former Oasis star, is hoping to grab Johnny Depp to star in the Beatles film he is making. The film will be about on the Liverpool band's company, Apple Corps., based on Richard DiLello's book The Longest Cocktail Party, says Channel24.
Gallagher is hoping Depp will play the bands long time publicist, Derek Taylor. Apparently Depp is the perfect person to play Taylor as they are so alike. Gallagher says the role has Johnny Depp all over it.
AFP reports that the script is finished and is going to "blow peoples minds". They are just deciding on where to find the actors.
It should be an interesting film if it ever does get made, you never know with these 'rockstar' types. However, if they get Johnny Depp it will bring a great deal of publicity to the film and has the potential to make it a hit.
Gallagher is quite friendly with Depp. They became friends in the 1990s when Depp was dating British model, Kate Moss. This may allow Gallagher to pull the 'friendship card' and get Depp in his film.
Do you think this film will ever get made?
Does one actor have the ability to turn an average film into a hit?
