Yesterday movie: writer Richard Curtis: "You have to give Ed Sheeran a hard time"



Richard thanks very much today we're talking about the film yesterday obviously I want to talk about the enemy well my mum never understood it she always thought it was enemy and em1 every week I'd say will you get me a copy of enemy when you go down to Smith's will you do this with you that enemy I read every single magazine for probably about a seven year period funny enough another person who does think it's enemy is Ed Sheeran the lyric that says I've only got one enemy and it's the enemy yes I hope you'll change your mind now that you've seen him at yeah well one thing about they I know you're quite close to that you don't give him an easy time in this film to you but she's quite no he must be teased because of the fact he's had so much success and still hasn't cows hair but that's great as much as it seems like as much it is a film about the Beatles it's kind of odd story as well you know we've got someone into this or the East Anglia kind of gifted with all these songs and quite an unassuming person who then becomes yes but also the curve of the Romantic film because that is now you know married to or getting married to cherry you you at school right yeah and so he kind of gave me the confidence that a story of someone who becomes the biggest star in the world yet he's still as it were find love at home so we've got you this is you and Danny Boyle coming together so you were kind of the the king of the Brit calm at the time when Danny was making sort of a Jean do you movies this is what kind of feel pardon the Beatles upon coming together yes to two giants and embrace cinema did you expect it to work out as well as it has yeah I mean III think there's enormous similarities about the way between transporting in for weddings which we brought at the same time two bunches of friends just a little less heroin in one of them yeah our heroine yeah no look I know daddy as a person and not only is he a huge Beatles enthusiast but he's a kind of lovely enthusiastic in some ways quite romantic man so rather than looking at the films which I loved for all their direct and skill I kind of looked at the man and thought he'd have exactly the right heart to do it and the Beatles say this is a real love letter to the Beatles this film and to their songs did did you kind of feel a great responsibility when you get the permission to use these from your kind of the steward of them from the PLM well only for a little while yeah nothing can damage the beetles they are as it were the Everest of music so I'm not gonna I'm just a little tent on the lower slopes that looks pretty in for a moment or two with some dead bodies on the way up before always they're not metaphor because there's never been a great Beatles biopic yes we've yet with might you kind of go on and make one well of course I think hard day's night is an amazingly great film so as yeah the films have been represented beautifully I don't know I mean we found another way around it there aren't another problems with biopics tends to be that they sort of star humble move into drugs and alcohol and then end with a final for the final singing of a song with someone broken and that's not the story of the Beatles or what I want to tell quite right and you're your hero it kind of is a lovely humble person all the way through yeah pretty much as well so it also strikes me this could really kind of transfer to the West End you know we could we could have yesterday the music or what do you think so well you must think socially yeah well I don't know we'll wait the Seaport you can write it I'm quite busy and just to finish off obviously a lot of our audience are young that come to live actually later it's become a real millennial classic in a way oh oh you get a lot of pressure from young people that you know so friends have children everything to make a sequel I couldn't I couldn't make a sequel because we only got through by the skin of our teeth you should have seen that movie like three months before it was released so no I could I do once at an Easter with lots of chocolate why the hell not that way else that's it thank you so great
