Netflix announced today that singer/songwriter Paul McCartney will be writing original songs for the animated movie High in the Clouds based on the popular children’s adventure novel of the same title by McCartney and Geoff Dunbar & Philip Ardagh. Timothy Reckart (The Star, Head Over Heels) is directing the film, which follows an imaginative teenage squirrel who finds himself pulled into a ramshackle gang of teenage rebels who live high in the clouds. Jon Croker (Paddington, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald) is writing the screenplay. McCartney is also producing the Netflix and Gaumont production with Bob Shaye (The Lord of the Rings, The Golden Compass), the late Michael Lynne, Sidonie Dumas (Only God Forgives, The Neon Demon), Christophe Riandee, Nicolas Atlan and Terry Kalagian. McCartney has previously contributed original songs to several movies, including Live and Let Die, Vanilla Sky and Everybody’s Fine. No word yet on a release date for High in the Clouds.
