Paul McCartney's Book 'High in the Clouds' Adapted Into Movie
The upcoming movie adaptation of the children's book will feature original songs by the former member of The Beatles.


A children's book written by Paul McCartney, Geoff Dunbar and Philip Ardagh is heading to the big screen. Titled "High in the Clouds" and centering on a squirrel's quest to find a fabled animal sanctuary called Animalia, it will be released in 3D in 2015.

The former member of The Beatles will be involved in composing several original songs for the upcoming kiddie-friendly pic. Tony Bancroft ("Mulan") is tapped as the director with a screenplay penned by Josh Klausner ("Shrek Forever After"). Calling it a "passion project" for him, former Fab Four star McCartney is looking forward to creating "a warm, funny and moving animated film that will resonate with worldwide audiences."

Unique Features partners with RGH Entertainment to produce the animation. One of the producers Michael Lynne says in statement, "We know how special this project is for Sir Paul and how excited he is to be a part of this wonderful, creative collaboration."
