The Beatles manager Brian Epstein is to have his life story told in a new film that will shoot later this year.

Epstein was dubbed the fifth Beatle by Paul McCartney; and when John Lennon heard of his death in 1967, he declared, “He was one of us.”

The film will be called Midas Man (An Unauthorised Biography of Brian Epstein) and will star Jacob Fortune-Lloyd who recently appeared in the Netflix drama The Queen’s Gambit.
