First Trailer for 'Paul McCartney x Rick Rubin' Documentary Series
"You can actually control the band with a bass." Gather ’round, Beatles fans! There's a new documentary in the works. Paul McCartney revealed on Twitter a trailer for a brand new "documentary event" in the works titled Paul McCartney x Rick Rubin. Though, officially, it's still untitled and still seeking distribution. However, the early word is that Frank Marshall is helping produce this docu-series event that will feature six episodes with music producer Rick Rubin exploring "McCartney's unbelievable musical journey." The doc will cover McCartney's "long and massively influential career, from his pre-Beatles days to the present… [They] will also feature master tapes from a number of Beatles recordings, with the masters leaving Abbey Road Studios for the first time." This might end up being the definitive Beatles doc, despite plenty of others including Eight Days a Week recently. This teaser trailer doesn't reveal too much, but there is some footage.
