"If anyone can make a film about the Beatles songs even better musically, it's him", they added.

Reports suggest that the new movie has the working title of "All You Need is Love", and it's all about a busker who wakes up and realises he's the only person on the planet who remembers The Beatles' music. Plot details are being kept under wraps.
