Paul McCartney will provide a score of original songs to an animated adaptation of his children’s book, High in the Clouds. Variety reports that the film, directed by Rob Minkoff (The Lion King), is one of 11 projects in the works from ex-New Liners Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne’s new production company, Unique Features. Clouds tells the story of a squirrel’s quest for a tropical animal sanctuary.
