Musician Paul McCartney, Netflix and Gaumont are teaming for the animated feature “High in the Clouds”.
Based on the 2005 children’s novel McCartney wrote with Geoff Dunbar and Philip Ardagh, the former Beatle is producing and contributing songs to the film which Timothy Reckart helms from a script by Jon Croker.
The story centers on an imaginative teenage squirrel named Wirral who finds himself pulled into a ramshackle gang of teenage rebels who live high in the clouds. He accidentally antagonizes Gretsch the owl, the tyrannical leader who steals the voice of anyone who upstages her.
McCartney, Bob Shaye, Michael Lynne, Sidonie Dumas, Christophe Riandee, Nicolas Atlan and Terry Kalagian produce.
