Hannah Murray Replaces Elle Fanning In 'God Help The Girl'; Emily Browning Joins The Film
It was perhaps inevitable that
Belle & Sebastian
was going to move into filmmaking. For anyone who has followed the band over the years, you know that each album has usually arrived with an extensive story build around it, with appropriately theatrical artwork to go with it. Well,

Production is set to get underway for three weeks this month, and we presume more official word will be arriving shortly. But the cast looks strong nonetheless, and the music is sure to be great and we're just glad things are continuing to move forward on the project.
