Paul McCartney Documentary Coming from Director Morgan Neville
Entitled Man on the Run, the film will draw on “unprecedented access to a never-before-seen archive of Paul and Linda’s home videos and photos, as well as new interviews,” according to a press release. It will specifically chronicle the timeframe between The Beatles’ breakup in 1970 and Wings’ heyday in the mid-1970s.
Neville, who earned an Academy Award for 2013 documentary 20 Feet from Stardom, most recently helmed the Anthony Bourdain retrospective, Roadrunner.
“As a lifelong obsessive of all things McCartney, I’ve always felt that the 1970s were the great under-examined part of his story,” Neville said in a statement. “I’m thrilled to have the chance to explore and reappraise this crucial moment in a great artist’s life and work.”
The film is being produced by McCartney’s MPL and Polygram Entertainment, the film and television division of Universal Music Group. A release date is forthcoming.
