London: Rocker-turned-film producer Liam Gallagher says he wants Johnny Depp to take on a role in his forthcoming film about `The Beatles`.

Former Oasis frontman Gallagher is bringing Richard DiLello`s book, The Longest Cocktail Party, to life on the big screen and he`s keen to cast Depp as the Fab Four`s longtime publicist, Derek Taylor.

"The film script is done. It`s gonna blow people`s minds, man. I`m just waiting to find out when we choose the actors. I want Johnny Depp to play Derek Taylor. It`s got Johnny Depp written all over it, man," dailystar.co.uk quoted him as saying.
