Noel Gallagher has been approached by a studio to make a film about Oasis and claims the working title is '20 Years A Slave'

Noel Gallagher has been approached by a studio to make a film about Oasis.

The band's former guitarist - who has barely spoken to brother Liam since their group split in 2009 - has revealed that he is considering the offer.

Speaking at The Weinstein Company BAFTA after party on Sunday (16.02.14), he told The Sun newspaper: "People have seriously approached me about that.

"It's something that's very strange but very tempting.

"If it means I get to come here and watch Brad Pitt eat a bit of salmon then I'll make a film a year if I can."

The 46-year-old musician, who attended the event at London's Rosewood Hotel with his wife Sara, wants actor Michael Fassbender to take the lead role in the new film but didn't specify whether he would want the star to play himself or brother Liam, 41.

The 'Wonderwall' hitmaker claims the working title for the film is '20 Years A Geezer'.

Although he complained about the music at the Weinstein party, calling it "utter s***e", Noel had fun rubbing shoulders with Hollywood stars.

He was seen chatting to Bradley Cooper during dinner at The Grosvenor House Hotel before the awards and actress Emma Thompson gave him a huge hug.

Meanwhile, Liam is set to hold castings in Los Angeles for a new Beatles film and has convinced Michael Winterbottom to direct the movie about the band's company Apple Corps and the break-up of the group.
