The documentary film will show Oasis’s beginnings when Noel joined his brothers band in 1991, recording their first album, Definitely Maybe in 1994 and up to their bitter split while they were on tour in 2009.
The film is scheduled to be released sometime in 2016 and will also feature the bands two-night residency at Knebworth Park where Oasis performed in front of 250,000 fans.
Since 2009, Liam and Noel have formed separate bands; Liam started up Beady Eye that year, which consisted of the last Oasis lineup before the break-up. Noel formed Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds in 2011.
Both brothers released two full studio albums from their respective bands. Noel continues to successfully record and perform with his High Flying Birds band whereas Liam dissolved Beady Eye late last year.
Whitecross previously directed Spike Island which was about another British band, The Stone Roses. He was also at the helm for Sex and Drugs and Rock And Roll, which was a biopic on punk pioneer Ian Dury.
