Director, Oscar and Grammy winner Morgan Neville will shoot a documentary about the singer, musician and one of the founders of The Beatles, Paul McCartney. This was reported on February 4 by the Deadline portal.
The film, tentatively titled Man on the Run, will cover the 10-year period in the life and work of the musician after the breakup of The Beatles, and will also tell about his marriage to Linda McCartney. During this time, McCartney released such hits as Maybe I’m Amazed, Another Day, My Love, Band On The Run, Goodnight Tonight and others.
“Having been obsessed with everything related to McCartney all my life, I always felt that the 1970s were a greatly underestimated part of his history. I look forward to exploring and re-evaluating this defining moment in the life and work of a great artist, ”Deadline is quoted as saying.
According to the publication, Neville received access to unique, previously unseen videos and photos from the archives of McCartney and his late wife Linda. These materials will be combined with new interviews of the musician.
