    Ron Howard is releasing a Beatles film that will launch Hulu's documentary division, reports Variety. "Ron Howard's "The Beatles: Eight Days A Week" (working title), slated to debut in theaters and on Hulu this fall, marks the first documentary feature to premiere exclusively on Hulu after a theatrical run. The film, Hulu's first licensing deal with Apple Corps Ltd., will launch under the new Hulu Documentary Films arm, which will procure premium original and exclusive documentary titles.

    "The Beatles: Eight Days A Week," featuring rare and exclusive footage, is produced with the cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison. White Horse Pictures' Nigel Sinclair, Scott Pascucci and Brian Grazer of Imagine Entertainment are producing with Howard. Apple Corps' Jeff Jones and Jonathan Clyde are serving as executive producers, along with Imagine's Michael Rosenberg and White Horse's Guy East and Nicholas Ferrall. The film is based on the first part of the Beatles' career, from 1962-66, the period in which they toured and captured the world's acclaim."

    Earlier this week, it was announced that Paul McCartney would be joining Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Roger Waters, and the Who for a three-night mega concert event entitled ‘Desert Trip.' McCartney will be playing Saturday, October 8th along with Neil Young. McCartney is currently on tour and is set to play tonight in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
