Paul McCartney is a legendary musician who has had an incredible career since the dissolution of The Beatles. Now, Morgan Neville is directing a documentary that will explore McCartney’s post-Beatles success. Titled Man on the Run, the documentary will feature never-before-seen material from McCartney’s archives and new interviews with him and his collaborators.
The documentary will be produced by Universal Music Group’s television arm Polygram Entertainment. It will be the latest music-related documentary from Neville, who has previously directed the Oscar-winning 20 Feet From Stardom, Keith Richards: Under the Influence and the upcoming Bono & The Edge: A Sort of Homecoming, With Dave Letterman.
Neville said of Man on the Run, “I was too young to buy Beatles records when they came out, but I could buy Wings records, and I loved them. To me, the story of what happened to Paul in the wake of The Beatles when he had to rediscover himself is the story that has never been told.”
Universal Music Group Executive Vice President Michele Anthony added, “How do you rediscover yourself after being in the biggest band the world has ever known? Well, until the breakup of The Beatles, no one had ever had to answer that question. At its heart, it’s a story of Linda and Paul’s enduring love as he finds his own voice as an artist, resulting in one of the most creative periods of his life.”
The upcoming documentary will be an exciting exploration of McCartney’s post-Beatles career. It will provide a unique insight into the legendary musician’s life and an opportunity to witness the journey of his rediscovery. As of now, no release date or release method has been announced for Man on the Run, which could undergo a title change before its arrival.
