Liam and Noel Gallagher are to be reunited on the big screen after agreeing to star in a film about Oasis.

The brothers, who fronted the group, have agreed to share their favourite memories and offer their insight in interviews for Mat Whitecross’s documentary movie. The band’s record label, Big Brother Recordings, will grant the film-makers access to archives.

The film, produced by director Asif Kapadia and James Gay-Rees who made Amy, the film about the late singer Amy Winehouse, will offer “a rare and candid insight” into the group and document Oasis’s early beginnings when Noel first joined his brother Liam’s band in 1991.

It will chart their rise to fame when their first album, Definitely Maybe, became the fastest selling debut in British history when it was released in 1994 and follow the siblings as they landed eight UK No 1 singles and eight UK No 1 albums until their acrimonious split in 2009.

The film, which scheduled for release in 2016, will feature Oasis’s two-night residency at Knebworth Park in 1996, when they played to 250,000 fans.

The Gallagher brothers have had a turbulent relationship since the split and have yet to resolve their differences amid constant rumours they plan to reunite.

In May, Noel criticised his brother for walking out on their live shows, saying: “I could never forgive him for that, ever.”

They have since continued making music separately, with Liam using the name Beady Eye until the band broke up in 2014, while Noel went on to form his solo project in Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

Whitecross’s fims include Spike Island about the Stone Roses and Sex And Drugs And Rock And Roll, a biopic of punk pioneer Ian Dury.

Amy broke box office records on its release earlier this year and became the highest-grossing British documentary of all time, with takings of £5.4 m.
