Northern Soul: The movie (may not contain actual Northern Soul)

You'd have thought that it would be hard to balls up a Northern Soul movie. Well, okay, casting Alfie Allen in it was probably a sign that Souled Out was going to struggle a little, but at least the soundtrack would be spot-on, right?


Paul Weller, Duffy and Mark Ronson's studio-band The Dap-Kings are working on the soundtrack for a new independent film about Britain's 1970's Northern Soul phenomenon.

Right. So it's a film about a youth movement where the music was absolutely everything, and they're instead wheeling in a couple of twenty-first century acts to do the music instead?
