A new Beatles documentary — from Ron Howard

News today for those who can’t get enough of the Beatles: Filmmaker Ron Howard will direct a new documentary about the Fab Four, to focus on the years between 1960 and 1966 — beginning with the little-known Liverpool band performing at the Cavern Club, and ending with a massive concert in San Francisco’s Candlestick Park. The film is authorized by the band’s holding company, Apple Corps Ltd, and has the cooperation of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon, and Olivia Harrison — and will reportedly include much never-before-seen footage from collectors. (And yes, there might be a sequel.) Word is that the film will be ready “sometime next year.”
