IAR EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Producer Vivek Tiwary talks 'The Fifth Beatle
Paul McCartney once said, "If anyone was The Fifth Beatle, it was Brian."He was referring to Brian Epstein, the legendary manager of The Beatles. Epstein has been credited with their discovery as well as their success.Broadway Theatre Producer Vivek Tiwary has secured $25 million in financing for his much-anticipated and long-awaited foray into film entitled THE FIFTH BEATLE. A story ripe to be told, the film will be centered on the Fab Four’s manager, a closeted homosexual in the days when being so was illegal in the UK. The film will focus on how Epstein suffered with his outsider status and dealt with his pain all while The Beatles became world famous.
Why does the fact that this project is tied in with a 'graphic novel' of Brian (oh dear) via a producer of a Green Day musical (oh dear) fill me with little hope for this film?
On the issue of Beatles' music within a film such as this, I'd argue that a film about Brian would be best served if it actually had no Beatles' music in it! No film has ever succeeded in recapturing it, and I believe there's a reason for that.....it can't be recaptured.
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus
