Ash's Tim Wheeler has also signed up to pen tracks for new flick
According to The Sun today (July 11), the film is a “non-conventional Britpop teen musical” and follows the fortunes of a young band from Essex, where Blur are originally from.
The film, which is set in 1996, will also feature songs written by Ash frontman Tim Wheeler, whose band also rose to the fore around that time.
Wheeler is currently putting together the score for Spike Island, the new film based on The Stone Roses‘ legendary gig on Merseyside in 1990. That is due for release later this year.
