Martin Scorsese to make new Beatles film

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr may act in the new flick

Oscar-winning film director Martin Scorsese has been signed up to make a biopic of late Beatles guitarist George Harrison.

According to Variety magazine, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr may appear in the film, which will cover both Harrison’s time in the Beatles and his solo career, as well as his foray into films.

Scorsese is set to begin production for the film before the end of the year. Harrison’s widow Olivia will aid Scorsese during the making.

“It would have given George great joy to know that Martin Scorsese has agreed to tell his story,” she said.
