Belle & Sebastian Are Scoring New Simon Bird Comedy Film

Beautiful, dark, detailed songs tell the story of a heavy metal loving teen

Belle & Sebastian are set to score Days Of The Bagnold Summer, which is the feature directorial debut from The Inbetweeners star Simon Bird.

The film, which wrapped shooting last Friday, is a coming of age comedic adaptation of Joff Winterhart’s graphic novel Days Of The Bagnold Summer. The story follows a 15-year-old heavy metal lover who is forced to spend the summer with his mother after his plans to go to Florida get cancelled last minute.

Monica Dolan and Earl Cave (the gas station employee from The End Of The F***ing World) are set to star in the film with Rob Brydon, Tamsin Greig, Alice Lowe, and Elliot Speller-Gillot.

Days Of The Bagnold Summer will be released sometime next year.
