Scottish indie favourites Belle & Sebastian will provide the official soundtrack to Simon Bird’s upcoming film, Days Of The Bagnold Summer.
The project – which is an adaptation of Joff Winterhart’s graphic novel – will see Bird, who shot to stardom as Will McKenzie in The Inbetweeners, make his directional debut.
The film will star Rob Brydon, Tamsin Greig and Earl Cave (The End of the F***ing World).
According to a press release, Days Of The Bagnold Summer is “a tender and funny coming-of-age and an acutely observed portrait of growing pains.”
It tells the story of “a heavy-metal-loving teenager’s holiday plans falling through at the last minute, meaning he has to spend the summer with the person who annoys him most in the world: his mum.”
