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.
We’ve been asked to make a soundtrack for Simon Bird’s adaptation of the graphic novel, Days of the Bagnold Summer. We are much more excited than Sue and Daniel Bagnold (pictured) pic.twitter.com/HDgvtcMZ5R

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.
