Stone Roses film casting update

Screenterrier posted back in July about the open casting call in Manchester for the upcoming feature Spike Island.

Elliott Tittensor (represented by Curtis Brown) from Manchester, who plays Carl Gallagher in Shameless, and Matthew McNulty (soon to be seen in the new series of Misfits) will star in the feature written by Chris Coghill and directed by Mat Whitecross.

Based on the Stone Roses’ most iconic performance, the film focuses on a group of young estate boys who have formed their own indie rock band and travel to see their favourite band’s iconic 1990 Spike Island gig.

The band has given permission to use their music for the film, which is set to shoot between March - April 2012.
