I suppose it's time for me to put my tuppence in, although I hesitate to do so.
I'm probably the only one stuck in this mindset. Unfortunately, the way I think would perhaps not be conducive to attracting big money or a lot of audience.
However, I'm always considering the wholeness of Brian himself over any other consideration. How best to help people to understand exactly who and what he was.
I'm afraid I must agree with Rex Makin. I'm still inclined to shake my head, and remember what he said about anyone ever attempting to portray Brian Epstein.
But that's neither here nor there now. We need this motion picture made, and as perfectly as possible. His peers have been dying off one by one over the past several years, and without them to provide our truth, any depiction will be much less accurate. We need to recreate the human soul of Brian, his charm, his wit, his sorrow and pain, and share it all with the world.
Unfortunately, I cannot imagine one well-known actor who could even approach doing Brian justice. And yet I know it must be done by someone, if there is a movie to be made. Perhaps a meticulously-chosen unknown actor might be the right choice, even though box office might suffer.
I'm very, very torn on this. Most times I prefer to not even think about it.

I'm with gonetroppo here. Brian Epstein was only twenty-seven when he discovered the Beatles, isn't that right? For me, his extreme youth and their extreme youth are a big part of the charm. Having a manager of thirty-five or forty looking after "the boys" would just seem not right, and possibly even slightly creepy. So I am all for a young undiscovered actor.
