Scottish indie darlings Belle & Sebastian have scored the upcoming film "Storytelling" well, at least half of it.
The movie, starring James Van Der Beek ("Varsity Blues") and Selma Blair ("Cruel Intentions"), is divided into two acts, with former Shudder to Think guitarist Nathan Larson providing music for the first and Belle & Sebastian for the second, according to a representative for the band.
"Storytelling," directed by Todd Solondz ("Happiness"), focuses on high school and college life. Both the movie and album are due in October.
The film marks Belle & Sebastian's first stab at scoring. The experienced Larson has handled duties on the movies "Boys Don't Cry," "Bust" and "Tigerland."
Belle & Sebastian, who released Fold Your Hands Child, You Walk Like a
Peasant last year, are currently in a Glasgow, Scotland, studio recording a pair of singles for summer release, according to a posting on the group's official Web site that was confirmed by the band's representative.
