Released on November 19th Tony Award-winning producer Vivek J. Tiwary’s graphic novel ‘The Fifth Beatle’ relates the story of early Beatles manager Brian Epstein.

Plucking them from obscurity, Epstein developed the Beatles signature early look including those haircuts and launched them in the USA.

Bruce Cohen, it was recently announced, will be producer on a project to adapt the graphic novel into a feature length film. A director has not yet been named, but Tiwary said shooting is expected to begin sometime next summer.
