Default Johnny Depp for Beatles biopic?

Johnny Depp for Beatles biopic?

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

(Bangshowbiz) - Liam Gallagher wants Johnny Depp for his biopic of the Beatles.

The Beady Eye frontman is currently producing a movie based on the Liverpool band's company Apple Corps, from Richard DiLello's book 'The Longest Cocktail Party' and revealed he would love for the 47-year-old actor to take on the role of Derek Taylor, the band's long time publicist.

Liam told Q magazine:"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."

'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' star Johnny became friendly with Liam and his brother Noel in the 1990s when he was dating British model Kate Moss and they were in the band Oasis and as he has collaborated on one of their tracks before, Liam could persuade him to take on the role of Taylor.

Liam announced the project at last year's Cannes Film Festival in partnership with Revolution Films, revealing it traces the band's journey from their 1967 heyday to their demise in 1970.

He certainly could not play the part of any Beatle.

Derek Taylor? Depp as the House Hippie? I don't know about THAT one!

I think Johnny could pull off John or George. But Derek Taylor works, too. Depp is a versatile Actor, and I think he'd do better at these roles than some would think at first.

ANYROADS!.... I am excited that there's a Beatle-related project in the works.

Eh... Not that I want to be a wet blanket but maybe check if articles haven't already been posted. There's another thread about this started here.

I'll leave this here too, since it is about an upcoming Beatley film....

I think Johnny Depp may be able to pull off Derek, although at this time, I see no resemblance....
