Will Johnny Depp Star In Beatles Biopic?

Johnny Depp The Beatles longest cocktail party biopic film

They're the greatest pop/rock band in music history, yet somehow there haven't been a whole lot of films about The Beatles. No, Across the Universe does not count.

But that's about to change as Michael Winterbottom takes the helm of The Longest Cocktail Party. The film, which is based on the Richard DiLello book, showcases the most crucial moments in the band's career between 1967 and 1970.

Michael is also set to produce it with Andrew Eaton. But the whole project was given birth by the original producer and Oasis front-man Liam Gallagher. It was his idea to turn the book into a movie, and it is also his idea to cast Johnny Depp as Derek Taylor, the band's publicist.

Yoko Ono & Paul McCartney Pose Together Without Killing Each Other

Perhaps time has softened their loathing.

On Sunday, both Yoko Ono and Paul McCartney attended the premiere of the new Martin Scorcese's documentary about George Harrison. The pair seemingly put their differences aside as they graciously posed for pictures together without fuss, and didn't look too bitter about having to do it.

Maybe.

Paul McCartney was the poetic, pretty one.

And Ringo Starr? Crazy drummer.

Martin Scorsese knows that, and that's why he's been working on a film project with Harrison's widow for HBO.
