Blur star Graham Coxon has signed a deal to write the songs for a film about a fictional Britpop band, according to reports.

Called The Wanderers, the movie has been billed as a "non-conventional Britpop teen musical", Screen Daily said.

The film, set in 1996, follows a young band from Colchester, Essex.

It centres around a 16-year-old boy who encounters relationships and sex for the first time as his band, The Wanderers, try to become the next big Britpop sensation, Screen Daily said.

X-Men First Class actor Bill Milner is attached to star in the film.

Ash frontman Tim Wheeler will also be helping to pen the music.
