MUSIC- Sir Paul McCartney is writing music for a stage adaptation of Frank Capra's classic It's A Wonderful Life.

McCartney, 77, is working closely with writer Lee Hall and British producer Bill Kenwright for the musical which will debut sometime later in 2020 in the UK.

“Writing a musical is not something that had ever really appealed to me,” said McCartney in a statement obtained by the Associated Press. “But Bill and I met up with Lee Hall and had a chat and I found myself thinking this could be interesting and fun. … ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ is a universal story we can all relate to.”
