Badly Drawn Boy working on new film soundtrack

Badly Drawn Boy is excited to announce that he has been working on the soundtrack to the movie "Being Flynn", which will be released in Spring 2012.

Badly Drawn Boy will release a soundtrack of original material written for the film, which sees him working again with Academy Award-nominated writer-director Paul Weitz (ABOUT A BOY).

Based on a true story, BEING FLYNN follows Nick Flynn (Paul Dano of LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE, THERE WILL BE BLOOD) who is shocked to have his eccentric and long-absent father, Jonathan (two-time Academy Award winner Robert De Niro) reach out to him unexpectedly. Still feeling the loss of his mother (played in flashbacks by four-time Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore) in the midst of starting a new relationship with Denise (JUNO's Olivia Thirlby), the last person Nick wants to see is his father. But you can't outrun fate and slowly Nick comes to realize he has been given the chance to make a real future not only for himself, but for his struggling father too.

Watch the trailer here, which features “The Shining” from Badly Drawn Boy’s debut album “The Hour Of Bewilderbeast”.
