Open auditions are to be held for a new film which uses The Stone Roses' 1990 Spike Island show as its backdrop.

The film, suitably named Spike Island after the 30,000-capacity Merseyside gig, has been written by 24 Hour Party People actor Chris Coghill. The plot will revolve around an unsigned band from a council estate in Manchester.

Auditions are set to be held on Saturday (March 12) in Sale. Film chiefs are looking for male actors aged 16-22. See Screenterrier.blogspot.com for the full details.

The movie is being directed by Misfits writer Tom Green.

Green has said of the film: "This is a raw and truly authentic rites-of-passage story. It's full of the humour, heartache, dreams and fears of being part of a brotherhood of mates, and set to the greatest record ever written [The Stone Roses' 1989 self-titled debut]."
