The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas has promised to provide new music to a friend's film if the movie secures enough money to go into production.

Producers behind indie movie She's Lost Control, a film about a sexual therapist who teaches men to be intimate before falling for one of her clients, is seeking £31,000 ($50,000) via Kickstarter to get the film off the ground.

Casablancas appears in a video posted alongside the appeal in which he says he will make the music as a favour to his friend, executive producer Simon Taufique - scroll down to watch it. Taufique says in the video that he is the composer of the film and that he will make make the music with the help of a friend, at which point the camera pans across to Casablancas, who says: "I'm Julian, I'm one of Simon's friends. Whatever he needs, I'll do."

At the time of writing, She's Lost Control has 118 backers and has raised nearly £7,500 ($12,000) towards its target amount. There are 14 days left for people to donate toward the movie with anyone pledging over £6,200 ($10,000) becoming an executive producer on the project.

Meanwhile, it was confirmed earlier this year that The Strokes are working on their fifth studio album with Albert Hammond Sr telling NME that his son, guitarist Albert Hammond Jr, is excited about the follow up to 2011 album 'Angles'.
