Damon Albarn is set to write the score for the short film, The Boy In The Oak.
A children’s book of the same name was written by Albarn’s sister, Jenna. Actor Jude Law will be narrating and Luke Losey will direct.
The playlist reports that it “centers on a young boy who lives in the cottage with a big old oak tree out back. He doesn’t really care about the tree and certainly doesn’t know it is enchanted, but all that changes as the fairies living in the oak are about to cast a spell that will change his life forever. Sounds pretty cute and given the talent lining up to bring this one to life we’re definitely curious.”
Although there is no announced release date, the film is expected to have screenings in Spring 2011.
