Ringo Starr and David A. Stewart Set Up Musical ‘Hole in the Fence’ With Paramount

Being the former drummer for my all-time favorite band, I owe at least some debt to Ringo Starr — which is to say that everything he does, though frequently middling, gets some passing attention. Yet I might have zero choice but to give note to this next project, since Deadline reports that he and Dave A. Stewart (he of ’80s synth-rock group Eurythmics) just pitched their own musical, Hole in the Fence, to Paramount, which the studio has duly picked up and set David Harris to write; it’s indicated the two will also create the soundtrack.

Right now, we know their basic revolves around “a group of kids who form a band to escape their depressing mining town,”  and who, somehow, use the immense power of their rocking music to express all that pent-up angst. Although this initial logline leads me to think there won’t be much in the way of original content here, I’m always game for a fun, well-composed musical — and I’d say Starr‘s already proven he can make a good song or two when on-point. (I also like a couple of Eurythmics tunes, for whatever that’s worth.)

Is this a proper duo to have working on a musical?
