A New Paul McCartney Documentary Will Chronicle His 1970s Era

A new Paul McCartney documentary will chronicle the musician’s 1970s era, from the Beatles’ split through his fledgling solo career and the formation of Wings with his late wife, Linda McCartney. Man on the Run will include both new and previously unseen archive interviews, with a focus on his relationship with Linda. Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom; Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain) will direct the documentary.

Neville said in a press release, “As a lifelong obsessive of all things McCartney, I’ve always felt that the 1970s were the great under-examined part of his story. I’m thrilled to have the chance to explore and reappraise this crucial moment in a great artist’s life and work.”

Producer Michele Anthony added, “At its heart, this is a story of Linda and Paul’s enduring love and an artist finding his own voice after being in the most historic music group ever. Our film traces one of the most incredibly creative periods of Paul’s life which spawned a vital and legendary body of work that continues to impact people and culture in every corner of the globe. We are honored to present this story with unprecedented access to a treasure trove of material from Paul and Linda’s personal archive.”

MPL, Polygram Entertainment, and Tremolo Productions are releasing the documentary. A date has not been set.
