Amy, the July documentary about the career and personal trials of Amy Winehouse, was by all accounts a brilliant film. That makes it doubly exciting that an Oasis doc is not only coming into existence, but that it's happening courtesy of Amy director Asif Kapadia and producer James Gay-Rees. Kapadia will play executive producer while Mat Whitecross (Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, The Road to Guantanamo) will direct.

Deadline's got details:

"The film will document the band’s journey from the moment in 1991 when Noel Gallagher joined his brother Liam’s band, progressing in less than three years to releasing their first album Definitely Maybe, which became the fastest-selling debut album in British history at the time."

Screen Daily says "the filmmakers have been given 'unprecedented' access to the band and unseen archive footage and the film will include candid insight from the famously stormy brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher." That last bit alone should be worth the price of admission and popcorn.

Amy earned $8.4 million in the U.S. and became, as NME notes, the U.K.'s second-biggest documentary ever with its $5.3 million gross.
