Liam Gallagher has reported back after seeing the "Biblical" new Oasis film.
As reported, the team behind last year's Oscar-nominated Amy Winehouse biopic are working on a new film charting the rise of the Britpop band right from their early days. The filmmakers are said to have been given "unprecedented" access to the band and unseen archive footage, with both Noel and Liam Gallagher agreeing to "share their favourite memories and offer their insight in interviews".
Liam Gallagher tweeted this morning about seeing an early version of the film, writing: "Just seen the 1st cut of the OASIS film BIBLICAL what ever happened to my ROCKNROLL LG x"

James Gay-Rees of production company On The Corner and director Asif Kapadia are part of the new project. Kapadia will act as executive-director on the film with Mat Whitecross to direct. Whitecross has directed a number of Coldplay videos and 2012 film Spike Island.
Kapadia's Amy film became the second biggest documentary ever at the UK box office, grossing £3.44million. The film previously surpassed Kapadia's award-winning Senna (£.3.17 million).
Oasis parted ways in 2009, with rumours of a potential reunion circulating since. Speaking in 2015, Noel said that the group wouldn't reform for Glastonbury Festival as the organisers "don't pay enough".
