Paul said a new edit of the Beatles movie Let It Be could enter production in the near future.
The original 1970 documentary hasn’t been available in home formats since 1982 as a result of scenes that showed the band in a negative light as the members moved toward their split. Paul said about the movie during a recent radio interview: “We keep talking about that,” “We have meetings. … People have been looking at the footage.” He added that he’d been told that a great deal of the unused material showed “a bunch of guys making music and enjoying it.” “Who knows, that may be happening in a year or two,” he noted.
Discussing a potential re-release in 2018, Paul told Rolling Stone that he’d had no objection to the idea, though he added that the “objection should be me. I don’t come off well.” He went on to explain that he was “one of the votes” on the board of Apple Corps, and that Ringo, Ono and Olivia Harrison counted as much as he did. “That’s the secret of the Beatles – can’t do three to one,” Paul said, “During the breakup was when it got screwed up – we did three against one. But now it has to be unanimous. The two girls are Beatles.”
