A Beatle and a Eurythmic walk into a bar… and pitch a coming-of-age musical to a major studio??
We didn't see that one coming!!
Paramount commissioned rock legends Ringo Starr and Dave Stewart to create and help produce Hole in the Fence, a coming-of-age musical drama about young Brits from a poor mining town who find hope and salvation through rock ‘n’ roll.
Hmmm. That sounds
a lot like Billy Elliot but with drumming instead of dancing promising.
The duo has come together before but this is their first foray into cinema.
We’re genuinely curious to see whether Starr and Stewart find success!
David Harris is set to adapt the rockers’ idea into a feature length script — Harris and Stewart collaborated previously on the graphic novel/upcoming movie Zombie Broadway.
Now that’s a movie we would pay to see!!
