Ringo Starr and former Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart have signed on to create a musical for Paramount, Deadline Hollywood reports. The film, called Hole in the Fence, is based on an original idea by the musicians, who will serve as songwriters and executive producers on the project. David Harris will write a script based on Starr and Stewart's coming-of-age story about kids who form a band in a depressed mining town.

This is not Harris' only musical project with Stewart. The writer is also adapting Zombie Broadway, a graphic novel he created with Stewart and Christine Schenley, for the screen with director Jonas Akerlund.
