Now Sir Ringo himself has finally spoken out on the projects on his Instagram.

The 83-year-old drummer posted a picture of The Beatles lying on a yellow surface dressed in black and looking up at the camera in a cross shape.

Sir Ringo enthused: “Have you heard the news? Oh boy. We all support the Sam Mendes movie project. Yes, indeed. peace and love.”

Meanwhile, Sir Paul hasn’t commented but simply put a link in his Stories to the press release on the official Beatles website.
