Last we heard from former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher, he was talking smack about Radiohead's latest release The King of Limbs.
Now, it appears that Liam has decided to spend his time in a more productive manner, because he's working on a Beatles movie about "the Fab Four's company Apple Corps," which will be based on the Richard DiLello book The Longest Cocktail Party.
Liam's got VERY ambitious plans for this project, and he wants Johnny Depp to star as the Beatles' long-time publicist Derek Taylor.
Here's what Liam had to say about it:
"Derek Taylor was a dude. He's up there with Lennon. The film script is done. It's gonna blow people's minds, man. I'm just waiting to find out when we choose the actors."
"I want Johnny Depp to play Derek Taylor. It's got Johnny Depp written all over it, man."
Guess we'll see if this project piques Johnny's interest. We know that Depp's already got LOTS of projects on the horizon, such as Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger, and inevitably more Pirates flicks…but who knows? Maybe Liam will luck out and Johnny will say yes!
What do U think about this project? Is Johnny right for the role?
