The former Beatles drummer has undertaken a joint venture with Stan Lee’s POW! Entertainment to develop a multimedia franchise in which Starr will play a superpowered animated version of himself.
The Starr-Lee project initially will be launched as a 60- or 90-minute DVD, but POW! and Starr’s entertainment company, Rocca Bella, plan to explore TV, feature film and other avenues.
Starr called Lee “a great creator. (This project) wasn’t anything I was looking for. But he had this idea of a musical superhero — what I like to think of as a reluctant superhero. . . . I’ll zoom in to save the world, or a damsel in distress, or a small village. Who knows where he’ll go?”
