Liam Gallagher is to make a movie about the final years of The Beatles.

The former Oasis frontman's new film production company is developing a biopic based on a book by the Fab Four's "house hippy" in the late 1960s.

Richard DiLello's memoir The Longest Cocktail Party tells of the "wild rise and fall" of The Beatles' record company Apple between the heady days of 1968 and the band's break-up in 1970.

The Oasis singer's older brother Noel is also a fan of the work, first published in 1972, which he described as a "brilliant book".

Gallagher's film company, In 1 Productions, will collaborate on the project with leading UK independent Revolution Films, it has been confirmed.

A spokesman for In 1 Productions said: "This will be a film with humour and affection, providing an insider's look at what it meant to be a young man caught up in the wild swirl of the music business, celebrities and the tail end of the swinging 60s in London."

It is understood that further details will be announced at the Cannes Film Festival later this month.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

A pragmatist like you prefers to rely on facts and figure to make decisions. The hard data you want will not be available, forcing you to rely on your intuition. You must get in touch with your instincts. Tune in to your body's signals. Your stomach will tell you which direction to take. When it gives a painful twinge, you should change paths. When it flutters with excitement, you should move forward. This will be a surprisingly accurate barometer. Don't disparage it.More
