Emily Watson, Eddie Marsan, and Omari Douglas have joined the cast of Midas Man, which is about the life of visionary music manager Brian Epstein. Jacob Fortune-Lloyd, best known for his role in the Netflix series The Queen's Gambit, will be seen playing the role of Epstein.
Emily Watson will play his mother, Eddie Marsan as his father, and Omari Douglas as Lonnie Trimble, who was Epstein’s confidant and friend.

The film showcases how Epstein shot to fame at the age of 25 by discovering a series of artists including The Beatles, Gerry and The Pacemakers, and Cilla Black before he ended his life tragically at the age of just 32.
