LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy to appear as 'ageing hipster' in new film
'The Comedy' will screen at Sundance Film Festival in January 2012
The movie, which will screen at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival (January 19-29, 2012) in Utah, was directed by Rick Alverson and stars Tim Heidecker as a man who "whiles away his days with a group of ageing Brooklyn hipsters, engaging in acts of recreational cruelty and pacified boredom," reports Pitchfork.
Co-produced by the independent record label Jagjaguwar, the film is pitched as: "A scathing look at the white male on the verge of collapse, Rick Alverson’s carefully observed portrait provokes and disorients; a cautionary fable for the autumn of the American Era."

Next year's Sundance will also screen Shut Up And Play The Hits, a film documenting LCD Soundsystem’s last show at New York's Madison Square Garden in April 2011.
