Indie rock has its fair share of distinct voices, but few are as instantly recognizable as that of Dan Boeckner, the musician and voice behind the acclaimed Wolf Parade and Handsome Furs. But he's stepping off the stage for a brief moment, to try his hand at something a little bit different.

Director Scott Coffey tweeted at us (thanks!) the news that he is "thrilled that Dan Boeckner of Wolf Parade & Handsome Furs is scoring my movie #adultworld starting @RobertsEmma & @johncusack." And indeed, that's a pretty intriguing development for the film which is already quite promising. Starring the aforementioned Emma Roberts and John Cusack, along with "American Horror Story" star Evan Peters and "Raising Hope" actress Shannon Woodward, "Adult World" follows Amy Anderson (Roberts), a Stanford grad with dreams of becoming a poet who gets stuck working in an erotic bookstore to help pay off her mounting debt. Cusack will play Amy's hero and mentor, the delightfully named poet Rat Billings, with Woodward as her punk/goth roommate Candace and Peters as Manny.

No word yet if Boeckner will be singing any new tunes, or just providing more of a score, but at any rate it should prove to be fascinating backdrop to the film. No release yet for the film, but could a fall festival premiere be possible? Hopefully we'll know more soon.
