Song One music, penned by two. What's that riddle about?
Well, singer/songwriters Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice have been confirmed as the songwriting team for the new musical/romantic drama Song One, starring Academy Award Winner Anne Hathaway.
Song One is the story of a young woman who strikes up a relationship with her ailing brother's favorite musician, played by British musician Johnny Flynn.
Lewis and Rice have written a collection of original songs specifically for the film, and will score the picture as well.
Long time collaborators Jenny Lewis and Johnathan Rice released a critically acclaimed album together - I'm Having Fun Now - as Jenny & Johnny in 2010.
The film is produced by Jonathan Demme and Marc Platt alongside Hathaway and Adam Shulman. Kate Barker Froyland wrote the screenplay and will direct. The movie begins filming in New York City later this month.
Does this sound like music you'd want to hear and a film you'd want to see?
