The contentious relationship between Oasis’ Noel and Liam Gallagher means they won’t be appearing onscreen together in a new documentary about the band, but that hasn’t stopped the filmmakers from making the movie.
Supersonic will chart Oasis’ success, breakup and aftermath, and comes from the team who produced the critically acclaimed Amy Winehouse documentary Amy, reported NME. Mat Whitecross will direct the film and Amy director Asif Kapadia will serve as executive-director. Rather than include talking head videos interspersed with archival footage like many documentaries, Supersonic will feature only quotes from and about the band members.
“It seems like Liam and Noel are in the same room, like they’re having a conversation,” said Whitecross.
Oasis’ guitarist Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs said the documentary is pretty much the only thing Noel and Liam have agreed upon in 20 years. But don’t count on both of them showing up to its premiere. “Well, things seem to change with them day by day, so who knows?” Whitecross admitted. “But I wouldn’t put my house on it.”
Things remain chilly between Noel and Liam, to say the least. In May, Liam took to Twitter to share his true feelings about a potential Oasis reunion, peppering his answer with lots of NSFW language. He even posted a picture of Noel, calling him a potato, a true brotherly insult.
Supersonic arrives in theaters October 2.
