I tell you why I think it’s gonna happen. I think there may be a new version of it. Ok, that is kind of the latest gossip. Because there’s a lot of footage and the original movie came out and it was really… sort of… about the break-up of The Beatles.
And so for me, it was a little sad, the movie. But I know people are looking at the footage; there’s about 56 hours of footage.
