Liam Gallagher documentary will premiere at Cannes film festival
- A Liam Gallagher documentary will be shown at Cannes this year
- The film charts Liam’s outlandish life after his comeback tour two years ago
- Gallagher has a talent not just for making music, but for making tabloid headlines
- The new film will debut next month alongside Liam’s second solo album
Liam Gallagher: As It Was is due to be released next month to coincide with the ex-Oasis front man’s second solo album.
Co-directed by Charlie Lightening and his crew, the movie charts the British singer – who has a talent for making news headlines for his outlandish behaviour more than his musical talent – just before his comeback tour.
Gallagher’s first solo album, As It Was, became a hit back in 2017. According to Lightening, the new album is “gonna blow people away”.
In the trailer for the film – which is currently doing the rounds at the Cannes Film Festival, Liam blames his brother Noel for the break-up of the Manchester band Oasis.
Oasis was once billed as the biggest British band since The Beatles. It imploded in 2009 after Liam Gallagher threw a plum at his older sibling.
The bickering brothers haven’t buried the hatched in the 8-years following the incident. Liam regularly takes swipes at his until now more successful sibling on social media.
“Liam is one of the most influential and accomplished musicians of the last 30 years,” says Seth Needle, in charge of distributing the film. The documentary apparently “showcases his talent and personality like nothing before.”
Lightning has previously done projects with other musicians including Paul McCartney and Jamiroquai. His co-director Gavin Fitzgerald is fresh off the back of his last film, Conor McGregor: Notorious about the Irish MMA fighter.
