Benedict Cumberbatch To Play Beatles Manager Brian Epstein In Biopic

Brian Epstein is an odd choice for a biopic, you say? You're not sure about a Brian Epstein biopic, to be perfectly honest? Well, Tom Hanks doesn't agree with you, and he probably knows a bit more about the movies given that he's an actor, producer and millionaire. And a busy producer at that, it seems, given that Hanks recently announced he's working on a JKF movie and now he's working on this one, too, with Benedict Cumberbatch set to star as the infamous Beatles manager. Yes, that's his real name.

Brian Epstein is an odd choice for a biopic, you say? You’re not sure about a Brian Epstein biopic, to be perfectly honest?

Well, Tom Hanks doesn’t agree with you, and he probably knows a bit more about the movies given that he’s been in the business as an actor and producer for, what, thirty years? And a busy producer at that, it seems, given that Hanks recently announced he’s working on a JKF movie and now he’s working on this one, too, with Benedict Cumberbatch set to star as the infamous Beatles manager. Yes, that’s his real name.

For those of you who are shrugging and saying, “Why not give the Beatles their own bloody biopic?”, you might like to know that Epstein was a rather interesting figure in his own right: he was a closet homosexual, drug addict, 60s swinger and all-round character. So much so, in fact, that a few studios have tried to get an Epstein picture off the ground over the last few years, alas to no avail.

Paul McGuigan (Sherlock) is set to direct from a script by Todd Graff (Joyful Noise).

Benedict Cumberbatch sure seems like a good fit, though. What do you think? Sound like something you’d fancy watching in the future?
