Paul McCartney's daughter, photographer Mary McCartney, will direct the upcoming documentary, If These Walls Could Talk. chronicling the history of London's legendary Abbey Road Studios. Variety reported the film will serve as the debut production of Universal Music Group's Mercury Studios, which is headed up by Oscar-winner John Battsek, who'll produce through his new banner Ventureland. The doc is part of the 90th anniversary celebration for the studios which falls in November. No release date has been announced.
Between 1962 and 1970, the Beatles recorded most of their output in the EMI Studios situated on Abbey Road. The studio complex was later renamed Abbey Road in honor of the group's final album, 1969's Abbey Road. All four ex-Beatles continued to record at Abbey Road after the band broke up, with Paul McCartney returning the most often.
In addition to being a renown photographer — like her late-mother, Linda McCartney — Mary co-directed her father's 2000 solo documentary, Wingspan.
