Paul McCartney in “Shrek 4”

According to, Sir Paul McCartney is in talks to write the soundtrack for “Shrek 4” and may also have a small speaking role in the movie. The former Beatle will join Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz and Antonio Banderas in the fourth movie in the Dreamworks saga, which is due for a 2010 release. A source said:
“Paul has been discussing the possibility of providing the soundtrack to the next ‘Shrek’ film. His hit “Live and Let Die” was sung in the last movie at Shrek’s father-in-law’s funeral and was one of the funniest moments.
“If he says yes, Paul will compose a batch of original songs for the film and he could even voice a character.”
Paul said:
“I’m a huge fan of ‘Shrek’ as my little girl, who is three, loves it. I can do a really good impression of him – I put on my best Scottish accent!”
McCartney’s previous film work includes the Beatles films A Hard Day’s Night, Help! and Magical Mystery Tour. [source: MarketSaw]

    If indeed Paul McCartney writes the soundtrack for Shrek 4, then it would probably be the best soundtrack yet for this successful movie franchise. Surely the great Paul McCartney will be able to write the most appropriate songs for this film since he also mentioned that he is a “huge fan of Shrek”, and needless to say, he is one of the best composers in this century! … Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

    Liverpool is now situated in Scotland for Paul McCartney? He has the Liverpudlian accent of the working class, but in UK newspapers was a report that the Scottish accent is the best. Paul is a great talker. But great talkers are often great liars. And besides, he was asked writing one song (max. 5 minutes background music for a 1 1/2 hour film). Great public relation.
