      Original post

      I finally read the book High in the Clouds; I liked it.
      I am looking forward to seeing the movie of it. In a way, I think the book as a movie might work out better because it won't be so quick-paced as the book was.
      I can't remember if Paul's book was given positive reviews when it was released, anyone remember?
      What are your thoughts on the book/movie?

        The book got 3.5 out of 5 stars by Amazon reviewers. I have the book and I liked it. The "movie" was never made, as far as I can tell.

          hi Nancy!

          I thought the movie was in the making and coming out (I don't know when)?

            Apple Scruff:hi Nancy!

            I thought the movie was in the making and coming out (I don't know when)?

            Yeah, supposedly with Lady Gaga involved. But maybe her being on the TV show "American Horror Story: Hotel" made it impossible for her to participate and Paul is waiting for her.

              Yeah, I heard that too, Lady Gaga is involved somehow.
              I don't know, but if it ever comes out, I'd be happy to see it!

              have a great day Nancy

                  There were pics of Gaga working with Paul & a bunch of people. We had a diff thread about it...but I don't remember what it was called.

                  googled for the pic...

                        Gaumont Boards Paul McCartney's Animated Film 'High In The Clouds'

                        EXCLUSIVE: Paul McCartney's long-in-the-works animated film High In The Clouds will have to wait a little longer. The project, which has been in development since 2009, has been optioned by Gaumont, the French company with offices in Beverly Hills. The new deal marks the first animated feature project for Gaumont in the U.S.

                        The film, which features eight or nine original songs by the former Beatle, had been in the works under the umbrella of RGH Entertainment, a Jordanian company with offices in Woodland Hills. Those offices, however, were padlocked recently, and RGH is now nowhere to be found.

                        Two years ago, Deadline got a sneak peek at a sizzle reel for the film, which includes a rollicking number by Lady Gaga that hasn't been heard yet publicly.

                        The film is based on the 2005 children's book of the same name that McCartney penned, and it's believed he'll voice one of the main characters.

                        Gaumont, the first and oldest film studio in the world, will produce in association with Michael Lynne and Bob Shaye, co-founders of Unique Features - who have been involved with the project for years - and McCartney's MPL Communications. McCartney, Shaye and Lynne will serve as producers alongside Gaumont's CEO Sidonie Dumas, vice-CEO Christophe Riand?e, and president of animation Nicolas Atlan.

                        Representing McCartney and MPL Communications on the deal is attorney Lee Eastman, and Unique is represented by attorney Ezra Doner. WME's Samantha Racanelli brought the project to Gaumont.

                            Thanks for posting that. Very cool to hear. I wonder how long that will stay on the back burner?

                              oobu24:I wonder how long that will stay on the back burner?

                              Hopefully not as long as 'The Bruce McMouse Show'..........45 years and counting.

                                My son will probably have his own kids by the time it comes out!

                                  Eeee Cor Blimey:My son will probably have his own kids by the time it comes out!

                                  Unless it's like the Let It Be movie. Then his grandchildren will tell their grandchildren that it will happen someday.
