The title for a new Oasis documentary that’s in the pipeline has been announced as Supersonic.
The feature length film, which is due to reach cinemas this October, has been named after the Mancunian band’s 1994 debut single, also titled ‘Supersonic’.
Featuring up close and personal footage, as well as never before seen archive material and interviews with the band, the Oasis documentary reportedly follows them from the moment Liam and Noel Gallagher began making music together, to the present day.
Supersonic comes from the same production team behind ‘Amy’, the 2015 Oscar-nominated biopic about Amy Winehouse, including producer James Gay Rees and Asif Kapadia as executive director. Mat Whitecross is director, having already directed a number of Coldplay videos and 2012 film Spike Island.

As reported in the press release, Noel said of the film: “The love and the vibe and the passion and the rage and the joy that are coming from the crowd, if anything, that’s what Oasis was.”
Liam also commented, comparing Oasis to a Ferrari. “Great to look at, great to drive and it will fucking spin out of control every now and again when you go too fast,” he said. “I loved every minute of it.”
Earlier this month Liam also called the movie “biblical” after watching an early version of the film.
Oasis parted ways in 2009, with rumours of a potential reunion circulating since. Speaking in 2015, Noel said that the group wouldn’t reform for Glastonbury Festival as the organisers “don’t pay enough”.
