Modest Mouse's Isaac Brock scoring 'Country' film
While rumors continue to swirl around new Modest Mouse music, the rock band's frontman Issac Brock has formally signed on to score a new film.
"Queens of Country" is directed by Ryan Page and Christopher Pomerenke ("The Heart is a Drum Machine," "Blood Into Wine," "Moog") and features "Mean Girls" actress Lizzy Caplan and "Blood" subject and Tool frontman James Maynard Keenan. The Queen of Rockabilly Wanda Jackson will also show up in "Queens."
Brock has previously scored documentary "180 Degrees South."
"The film centers on Caplan’s character Jolene and a lost iPod, which the obsessed country music fan is convinced belongs to her soul mate. Jolene quickly finds herself in a hilarious adventure of mistaken identities, line dancing competitions, time machines and doppelgangers," reads a release on the film. It is currently in post-production for release in 2012.
Modest Mouse recently contributed a cover of "That'll Be the Day" to the star-dripping Buddy Holly tribue album, and have only one U.S. tour date on slate before they
Australia and New Zealand. They co-headlined the Sasquatch music festival earlier this year.
