Clubbed - Two Tone movie to go into production

Twotone We covered the only cinematic document of the Two Tone scene last week with Dance Craze. But now we hear that it could be joined by a new movie featuring the 80s hybrid ska scene.

The film goes under the title of Clubbed and will star Shameless actress (and fellow Boltonian) Maxine Peake, with direction from Neil Thompson, along with Shameless creator Paul Abbott as executive producer. Details are still vague, but according to IMDB, the movie is inevitably set in Coventry and is described as "an underworld drama set in the early 1980s, about a lonely factory worker whose life is transformed when he becomes a nightclub doorman".

The soundtrack could make or break the film you would imagine - and the man behind that is (oddly) the M-People's Paul Heard, although it's said to feature a variety of 80s ska, Northern Soul and R&B. You do wonder why Jerry Dammers isn't doing the job though.

The movie is set to be released in early 2008.
