The Lord of the Ringos? Peter Jackson to direct a Beatles film.

It's a little-known fact that in the 1960s, The Beatles tried to obtain the film rights to The Lord of the Rings.

John Lennon wanted to play Gollum, Paul McCartney would have been Frodo, and the band hoped Stanley Kubrick would direct it.

But their plan came to an abrupt halt when JRR Tolkien refused to play ball.

Now, in a strange twist of fate, a new Beatles film is being directed by Peter Jackson - who finally brought The Lord of the Rings to the big screen in 2001.

The Oscar-winning director will bring to life the tense recording sessions for the band's final album, Let It Be, using 55 hours of unseen studio footage that was shot in 1969.

In a statement, he described the film as "the ultimate 'fly on the wall' experience that Beatles fans have long dreamt about".

"The Story behind this song is absolutely incredible. It's basically about Paul's mother coming to him in a dream after she had died. Paul was feeling low about life at the time and she said to him (as she often did). "Don't hold on to things, let it go, Let it be"
