A feature-length documentary about Oasis is set to go ahead, produced by the team behind the record-breaking film about Amy Winehouse.
Independent is to handle international sales rights on Mat Whitecross’ as-yet-untitled documentary on the band Oasis, which it will introduce to buyers at the American Film Market this week.
The film will document the band’s journey from 1991, when Noel Gallagher joined his brother Liam’s group. Oasis’ first album, “Definitely Maybe,” became the fastest-selling debut album in British history, and the band went on to sell 70 million albums. The filmmakers were given extensive access by the band, and also drew on never-before-seen archive material.
Independent’s Andrew Orr commented: “Oasis are without doubt one of the classic British rock bands, 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.”
