Paddington director wants to make a new Beatles cartoon
Animated Musical Meet The Beatles Coming From Paul King
Paddington Director wants to make a new Beatles cartoon.
It may not be Yellow Submarine, but there is a new Beatles cartoon on the way. Paul King, who directed the British-French live action/computer animated family comedy film Paddington from 2014, is in talks to direct the animated musical Meet The Beatles.
While not much is known about the movie other than it will be chasing a song considered the “one that got away,” it will feature songs that span the Beatles career.
Meet The Beatles is being produced by David Heyman, who produced the Harry Potter movies. This will bre the third collaboration for King and Heyman after Paddington and its hopefully upcoming sequel. The surprise 2015 hit Paddington was an adaptation of the Michael Bond books series.
King directed and starred in his first feature film, Bunny and the Bull, in 2009. King is the director for The Mighty Boosh. He also made the 2011 airport mockumentary Come Fly With Me. He is also scheduled to direct Lionsgate’s adaptation of R.J. Palacio’s novel Wonder.
The screenplay for Meet the Beatles was written by Jay Stern, who wrote Mr. Popper’s Penguins.
