Not only is McFly’s Tom Fletcher ace at being a chart-topping singer-songwriter, a YouTube famous wedding speech extraordinaire and a best-selling children’s author, he’s now adding movie-maker to his many talents.
The British star is working on brand new music for the film adaptation of his own children’s book The Christmasaurus.
It follows the festive tale of a boy named William Trundle who meets a dinosaur called The Christmasaurus on Christmas Eve and together they embark on a magical adventure.
Think of it as The Snowman meets Jurassic Park, but without the traumatic melting and nasty velociraptors.
The animated film adaptation will be helmed by Hollywood director Michael Gracey, who is currently working with the likes of Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron on The Greatest Showman On Earth.
Tom has written a number of new songs to be included in the film, which he will also perform at this year’s Royal Variety Performance.
The Christmasaurus will be released as a hardback book this Thursday (October 6), ahead of the new film and music.
It follows his and bandmate Dougie Poynter’s hugely successful The Dinosaur That Pooped series, which has released over the past few years.
It also comes after McFly’s recent run of ground-breaking shows across the UK, where they played all five of their studio albums in full over three consecutive nights in each tour location.
McFly are currently working on new music for their sixth studio album, but have yet to confirm when we’ll get to hear it. Not too long please, guys!
