BrianEpstein.comA second film based on the life of Beatles manager Brian Epstein is in the works.
The Hollywood Reporter says Benedict Cumberbatch -- best known for playing Sherlock Holmes in the British series Sherlock -- will star in the film. Sherlock director Paul McGuigan is also involved in the project.
Tom Hanks will co-produce the movie, which does not appear to have a title as of yet.
Epstein was integral in The Beatles' rise to super-stardom in the early 1960s. He **** in 1967 of an accidental **** overdose at the age of 32.
The project is not to be confused with another, previously-reported Epstein biopic titled The Fifth Beatle, which will include music from the Fab Four.
