Liam says his Beatles film is just a one-off

Liam Gallagher (below) says the film he is producing about the Beatles' Apple Corps will not herald the start of a movie-making career.

The former Oasis singer's new production company, In 1, is set to make a biopic based on Richard DiLello's memoir The Longest Cocktail Party, which charts the "wild rise and fall" of the record company at the end of the 1960s.

But, speaking in Cannes, Gallagher said: "I'm not going into films, this is the last thing for me. I'm not going to get sucked into that."

DiLello worked as the resident 'House Hippie' at Apple, which signed artists such as James Taylor, Mary Hopkin and Badfinger, from 1968 to 1970.

Gallagher said the memoir held "Biblical" meaning for his former Oasis bandmates.

"It's not about the Beatles, they're not going to be in it, there's going to be no dodgy wigs or anything, it's going to be behind the scenes."
