From paulmccartney.com, May 25, 2012:

With his directorial debut Paul has created a moving homage to photographer Irving Penn featuring Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp signing the words to his song ‘My Valentine’.

The video is now set to grace cinema screens in the USA from today appearing before The Weinstein Company’s film ‘The Intouchables’.

Paul told us, “My daughter, Stella, suggested the original idea to have Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp use sign language to portray my recent song, My Valentine. When I showed the finished film to Harvey, he suggested that it could be shown before one of the films he was releasing this year. It was very kind of him to suggest this and I’m excited to hear that it will be shown at many cinemas before his new release, The Intouchables. Harvey has been a great friend for many years and I hope he’ll remain so for many years to come.”

Harvey Weinstein said, “What an honor it is to have Paul’s short film directorial debut on the head of our INTOUCHABLES showings. Paul and Stella are great old friends. He was the first musician to say yes to perform at the 9/11 concert for New York, which I produced along with our friends John Sykes and Jim Dolan. Stella had a wonderful idea when she thought this song would translate well into a film, and I can’t wait to share it with our audiences when THE INTOUCHABLES comes out on May 25.”
