Liam Gallagher produces Beatles film
by Annika Pham
Newfound company In 1 Productions, created by former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher, is launching the film The Longest Cocktail Party based on Richard DiLello’s eponymous novel about the Beatles’ Apple Corps. The announcement came yesterday at Cannes.
In 1968, US-born DiLello was hired to join the Apple press office run by Derek Taylor –in the role of “House Hippie”. For two years, the American was part of the amazing daily life of Apple. The film will provide an insider’s look at what it meant to be a young man caught up in the whirlwind of the music business, celebrities and the tail end of London’s swinging sixties.
Gallagher founded In 1 this year to explore and develop ideas in digital media. The company’s other founding members are Steve Allen, Simon Rendell, Nigel Grant, Paul Gallagher and John Brice.
The Longest Cocktail Party will be developed and produced with Revolution Films, one of the UK’s most high-profile film companies, founded by Andrew Eaton and Michael Winterbottom.
