In February Noel Gallagher had already talked about an Oasis documentary, stating they would have released Knebworth both as a live album and a documentary.
Now, the team behind this year’s Amy are to make a new documentary about Oasis. James Gay-Rees of production company On The Corner and director Asif Kapadia will follow up their work on the Amy Winehouse film with a new flick charting the rise of Oasis from their early days as a band. Filmmakers are said to have been given “unprecedented” access to the band and unseen archive footage.
Screen Daily reports that Independent Film Sales will launch the film at industry event AFM, which takes place between November 4-11.
Andrew Orr, managing director at Independent, commented, “Oasis are without doubt one of the classic British rock bands, selling 70 million albums worldwide and defining the sound of a whole era. At its heart are Liam and Noel Gallagher, two of the finest rock ‘n’ roll stars this country has ever produced. Mat’s sensibility and style are going to provide the perfect complement to this tale of the rise of one of the great rock ’n’ roll bands.”
