A forthcoming high concept comedy is about to get a bit of twang thanks to an indie rock frontman, as it has been announced that the Modest Mouse's Isaac Brock will score the forthcoming Lizzy Caplan-starrer "Queens of Country."

To recap, “Queens of Country” finds Caplan leading the cast playing a young woman obsessed with the titular singers, the likes of Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Tammy Wynette. When she discovers an iPod full of songs by those artists, she becomes intent on tracking down its owner, convinced that it’ll belong to her true love. The film is directed by Ryan Page and Christopher Pomerenke, who were behind the documentaries “The Heart Is a Drum Machine” and “Blood Into Wine,” and co-stars Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan, Fairuza Balk, Ron Livingston and Joe Lo Truglio. And yes, it’s about as awesomely bonkers as you might expect with mistaken identities, line dancing competitions, time machines and doppelgangers all said to be featured throughout.

“It’s a super strange, really funny movie that hopefully will be seen by people...But I’m very proud of ['Queens of Country'] because it took unbelievable risks in that it’s the strangest movie you will ever see,” Caplan told us about the movie earlier this spring. And while we won’t get to hear her sing in the film, we will get to see her dance. “I do not sing, I line dance. It’s more of a line dancing movie. [It’s] me and my boyfriend in the movie—it’s Ron Livingston—and then the other couple is Matt Walsh and Joe Lo Truglio who plays the transgendered person. It’s pretty awesome.”

Brock is no stranger to country(ish) music, with plenty of flavor to found in his side project Ugly Casanova (who also recently tuned the documentary "180° South"). But, we'll be waiting a while for this one. "Queens of Country" is in post-production and won't be hitting theaters until 2012.
