I was talking about bands and I mentioned John Lennon and this kid asked me who John Lennon was.  I almost fell over.  I said the Beatles?  Paul McCartney?  Assassination?  
Then I asked him if he had ever heard of Elvis.
Sacreligious.
Ten should be enough.  You think 10 should be enough?  You think we need one more?  You think we need one more.  Alright,  we'll get one more.

Beatles Songs Provide 'Love' for '60s Romance

The Beatles are headed to Hollywood.

Or, more precisely, Sony-based Revolution Studios is developing a film musical, "All You Need Is Love," that will feature more than a dozen cover versions of Fab Four tunes.

The project, from veteran British screenwriters Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, is a romance about a British boy and an American girl set against the backdrop of the social upheaval of the 1960s.
 
Although not about the Beatles, the musical will use their songs to drive the narrative, with the actors singing and dancing to the classic tunes. The filmmakers are in negotiations to secure re-recording rights for the project, set to feature 17-18 Beatles songs.

"Everyone loves the Beatles," Clement said. "No matter how old or young someone is, where they're from or what they're background is, the music is universal."

Added La Frenais: "Everyone has a memory associated with the Beatles. Whether it was your first kiss or the first time you saw that girl standing across from you at the high school dance, chances are that the DJ was playing a Beatles song."

The film's producer, Matthew Gross, noted that Clement and La Frenais knew late Beatles guitarist George Harrison and drummer Ringo Starr personally.

"We wanted to create a story that stood entirely on its own merits," Gross said. "Even without the music, their story is dramatic, moving and powerful. That being said, no matter what we wanted to convey in a scene, there was always a Beatles song available to help us push the narrative and emotional beats forward."

Clement and La Frenais, who first teamed in the '60s on such swingin' London titles as "The Jokers" and "Otley," have written dozens of movies including two films for Harrison, whose Handmade Films produced 1985's "Water" and 1983's "Bullshot," both of which Clement directed.

Clement and La Frenais are collaborating with AC/DC vocalist Brian Johnson on a Broadway musical. They also wrote "The Commitments." Their credits also include the classic British TV series "Porridge" and "Auf Wiedersehen, Pet."

I hope these cover versions will be a whole lot better than those God-awful ones (save for the Mann/Penn duet on "Two Of Us") for that film.

why can't anyone use the original Beatles' recordings?
i know they would have been used a reused some many times by now, so maybe they wanted to keep that from happening.

i can think of two films that have actual Beatles' recordings:
Can't Buy Me Love - same as title
Ferris Bueller - cover of Twist and Shout
I am Torgo. I take care of the place while the Master is away.

I Want To Hold Your Hand - lots
Bowling For Columbine - Happiness is a Warm Gun

umm... it has something to do with the rights something something, like michael jackson owns the publishing so anyone can cover a song but not use the orignal without surviving members/estates permissions.  something like that.

it must be a very high price (i wish i could find figures) because, like i said, you know everyone and their mom would have been using them. it blew my mind when i turned on the tv one day and saw Patrick Dempsey riding a lawn mower to Can't Buy Me Love. i guess they were wiling to cut the price for Bowling for Columbine (i'm guessing its budget is a lot less than your average feature).
what are some films with I Want to Hold Your Hand?

i know wes anderson orig. wanted the beatles version of hey jude in the beginning of royal tenenbaums, and instead of van morrison's ''everyone'' at the end he wanted the beatles ''i'm looking through you''.....but they just could not afford it

and i may be wrong, but i think michael jackson only owns the rights to later beatles songs, and the beatles lost the rights to their early songs a while ago
