Definitely Maybe to Oasis movie

Noel Gallagher has revealed he finds the idea of an Oasis film "very tempting".

The 46-year-old musician said he has already been asked by a studio to make a biopic about the band, and is considering the offer, despite being estranged from his younger brother Liam.

He told The Sun: "People have seriously approached me about that. It's something that's very strange but very tempting."

Noel, who was at the The Weinstein Company Bafta after-party with wife Sara MacDonald, joked that the invite to another awards bash would be an incentive.

"If it means I get to come here and watch Brad Pitt eat a bit of salmon, then I'll make a film a year if I can," he said.

The High Flying Birds frontman would like Michael Fassbender in one of the lead roles, and quipped that the working title for the project is "20 Years A Geezer", in a jokey reference to Weinstein's Bafta-winning film, 12 Years A Slave.

Noel has barely spoken to his brother Liam since Oasis broke up in 2009. The warring siblings have been working on their own solo projects - Noel with High Flying Birds and Liam with his Oasis bandmates in Beady Eye.
