The Beatles icon Paul McCartney has revealed to fans that he wants Brad Pitt to play the lead in a film adaptation of his ‘Hey Grandude!’ children’s book. Kind of painful to know Brad is now old enough to play a grandfather! Paul McCartney’s daughter cried in a recent photo posted. Alternative Nation transcribed McCartney’s remarks.
McCartney said, “Brad Pitt would be the ideal choice to play Grandude in a film. He might need a little bit of makeup and prosthetics here and there, and a hairband, but I think he would be very good, don’t you?”
He was also asked if Grandude has a Grandmammy.
“Well, does Grandude have a wife? That’s a very good question, and I think that might get revealed if there’s another book. At the moment, it hasn’t even been thought of.”
Eeee Cor Blimey wrote about a recent Paul McCartney Grandude book signing on his forum, “Just got back – i hadn’t said on here we got tickets as i was actually unsure i’d able to make it down until a few days ago, as i had something i was really struggling to cancel. But we made it!
Took my 2 year old, he managed shyly to say the queenie eye chorus to Paul who then said it back to him and shook his hand! Course in all this i didn’t get to shake his hand so on the way out felt like a bad mum when i suddenly thought the selfish thought of “oh i didn’t touch him”!! but i’m over it… 😉 (Kind of, my sister was next after me and she got a hug!) So happy my son got to MEET Paul, something i thought would never ever get to happen, what with the age difference and things..”
