LUKE HAINES, guitarist for BLACK BOX RECORDER and the main man behind THE AUTEURS, has written the soundtrack for a forthcoming film, ‘CHRISTIE MALTY’S OWN DOUBLE ENTRY’.
The film is based on the novel of the same name by cult author BS Johnson, who committed suicide shortly after its 1973 publication, and is directed by ex-NME scribe Paul Tickell.
Haines’ score is “futuristic” and sounds like “Steve Harley fronting Kraftwerk”, according to one source.
Nick Moran, star of ‘Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels’, takes the lead role in the black comedy and enthused: “The film is a cross between ‘Billy Liar’ and ‘If’. Christie has nothing – he’s poor, he’s in a dead-end job and his mother’s just died – and feels the world owes him.”
The double-entry of the title refers to the accountancy discipline, insisting that to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, leading to a central theme of revenge and retribution. The film is scheduled for release later this year.
