London, Aug 28 (ANI): A film based on the life of Beatles manager Brian Epstein is reportedly set to be made.
According to Variety magazine, A Life in the Day, written by Tony Gottelson, will be produced by US filmmaker David Permut, who also revealed the film, would centre on the early days of the Beatles.
Epstein, who sold records at his father’s shop, Nems, in Liverpool, became the band’s manager after hearing them play at the city’s Cavern Club.
“Everybody turned down the band, even though Brian promised they would become bigger than Elvis, and he finally got George Martin at EMI to change his mind and give them an audition,” said a BBC report.
Epstein also managed other Liverpool stars in the 1960s including Cilla Black and Gerry and the Pacemakers.
Brian Epstein died in 1967, aged 32, from a sleeping pill overdose. (ANI)
