    A biopic about The Beatles manager Brian Epstein has been approved to use the band's music in the film. Called The Fifth Beatle, the film is not endorsed by the band members or their estates, but they have signed off on a script.

    The Hollywood Reporter claims that the film will feature six to ten of The Beatles songs including "All You Need is Love," "A Day in the Life," "Help!" and "Yesterday." The movie will trace the life of Epstein, a closeted homosexual, who lived as an outsider as the band he managed became hugely famous.

    A release date for the film has not yet been determined.
