Film Rights To The Beatle Who Vanished Have Been Sold

The rights for the film adaptation of The Beatle Who Vanished, a book by Jim Berkenstadt about the life of drummer Jimmie Nicol, who was a Beatle for 13 days, have reportedly been sold. The film rights were acquired by Alex Orbison, son of Roy Orbison, on behalf of the family’s Roy’s Boys Films and Ashley Hamilton’s 449 Productions. Hamilton is the son of actor George Hamilton and actress Alana Stewart. Berkenstadt’s book, first published in 2013, told Nicol’s story in detail. It included accounts of Nicol with the Beatles, his pre- and post-Beatles career and included many archival photos. Nicol temporarily replaced Ringo Starr when the Beatle was hospitalized in 1964 for tonsillitis and pharyngitis just as the group was about to play a series of concerts.
