"Young@Heart" is Working Title's narrative remake of Fox Searchlight's singing-senior documentary. Working Title acquired remake rights to "Heart" in 2007, Stephen Walker's original tells the story of a group of Northampton, Mass., seniors who, under the tutelage of a younger choir director, sing versions of songs from artists such as The Clash, Coldplay and James Brown. In addition to reveling in the comedy of seniors performing blues and punk numbers, it also focuses on the lives of the performers, several of whom passed away during the course of production.
