The Beatles To Take Another Big Screen Bow
The Beatles will be getting a big screen spotlight all their own with a 'little help from their friends.' A new project, The Beatles Live! is in the early stages, which will unearth rare treasures from the days of the fab four.
Production company One Voice, One World (OVOW) has been given the go-ahead with the project from The Beatles' Apple Corps to begin work on The Beatles Live!, The Wrap reports. The aim is a global search for hidden films, sound recordings, stories, photographs and other media artifacts that capture Paul, John, Ringo and George during the seminal band's concert tours.
"The best media and stories that we find will be showcased in a planned feature film about The Beatles’ concert tours. This project provides a one-time opportunity for the fans to collaborate with The Beatles in a planned feature film," notes the OVOW website.
The project solicits fans' material to be uploaded directly to their website in addition to submitting non-digital media and their stories at the center of Beatlemania.
The ultimate goal: to combine footage, images, music, interviews, and stories in a definitive, emotional and visceral feature film about Beatlemania," OVOW noted. "This cultural phenomenon not only brought the world together through song, but helped usher in what is now recognized as a golden age of contemporary music."
The Rolling Stones currently has a documentary marking their 50 years together. Brett Morgan's Crossfire Hurricane screened as a gala at the BFI London Film Festival last month.
