Blur's Graham Coxon, Ash's Tim Wheeler & More To Write Music For Debut Feature From BAFTA Nominee Luke Snellin

You may not have heard of Luke Snellin, and that would make him one of the most talented and promising young filmmakers that you haven’t heard of. Don’t believe us? Watch some of his films, including "Disco" and "Mixtape" below, and you may just change your mind. It’s with a great deal of excitement then that we’re able to report on the news, via press release, that the BAFTA-nominated writer/director will soon be directing his debut feature. We may have another Rupert Wyatt/Joe Cornish/Richard Ayoade/[insert name of talented, young British director here] on our hands.

You may not have heard of Luke Snellin, and that would make him one of the most talented and promising young filmmakers that you haven’t heard of. Don’t believe us? Watch some of his films, including "Disco" and "Mixtape" below, and you may just change your mind. It’s with a great deal of excitement then that we’re able to report on the news, via press release, that the BAFTA-nominated writer/director will soon be directing his debut feature. We may have another Rupert Wyatt/Joe Cornish/Richard Ayoade/[insert name of talented, young British director here] on our hands.

His debut will go by the name of “The Wanderers,” and will be a “non-conventional Brit Pop teen musical set in Colchester in 1996.” The story will follow a 16-year-old as he encounters sex and relationships for the first time as his band (the titular “The Wanderers”) strive to become the next big Brit Pop sensation. Snellin, who picked up his BAFTA nomination in 2010 for his short “Mixtape,” has a fantastic lead on board for the film too: Bill Milner (“Son of Rambow," “X-Men: First Class”). This writer is a particular fan of Milner (he's one of the best young actors anywhere in the world right now), and will not stop banging on about how he would have made a fantastic Spider-Man if Sony could have held off on the reboot for a couple of years. Ah well, he’ll always be baby Magneto.

We’re excited about this project, based on the concept and the talent involved, and it should be a pleasure to listen to as well: Blur's Graham Coxon, Ash's Tim Wheeler and nu-folk artist Emmy The Great (Snellin directed a video for a Christmas single by the latter two) are all on board to write the songs for the band within the film. And Britpop types including The Lightning Seed’s Ian Broudie, The BluetonesMark Morriss and The Divine Comedy’s Neil Hannon are all also attached to the project in various capacities, including consulting on the music, and possible cameos. The film's still firming up financing, but Snellin hopes to get before cameras later in the year, so we'll hopefully see this emerge some time in 2013.
