Liam and Noel Gallagher are to produce a special Oasis documentary.

The brothers will executive produce the documentary about Oasis’s most famous shows – two nights at Knebworth in 1996.

The film will revisit the feuding brothers at the height of the Britpop band’s fame, a year after the release of their album What’s The Story (Morning Glory).

The news of the feature-length film was confirmed on the 25th anniversary of the day tickets went on sale for the shows, which took place in August 1996 and were attended by 250,000 fans.

A post from Oasis on Twitter said: “The gig that defined an era. The 2 days in Aug 96, remembered forever by 250k Oasis fans as 1 of the greatest rock‘n’roll events to ever take place on British soil.

“The feature length Knebworth concert documentary, directed by Jake Scott, is released later this year.”

The film will be directed by music video director Jake Scott, who has worked with bands including Oasis, R.E.M, U2, The Verve and The Rolling Stones, and produced by RSA Films, the production company owned by Scott’s father, Sir Ridley Scott.

Scott added: “It’s a story driven entirely by the music, a rock and roll experience, told in the moment, like a visual stream of consciousness that is built around the extensive archive footage from the event.

“No on-camera interviews or unnecessary celebrity recollections.”

The film is due to be released later this year.

Fans went into a frenzy at the start of the year Liam teased an Oasis reunion in New Year message to Noel.

It took the 48-year-old singer less than an hour into the New Year to cryptically suggest 2021 was the year for the pair to reunite.

But things haven’t been plain sailing between the pair since the end of Oasis in 2009.
