Patrick-Wolf-PR-2010Patrick Wolf will provide the score for the upcoming Noël Coward biopic. The singer-songwriter - who released his most recent album Sundark and Riverlight in 2012 - said he is "thrilled" to be working on his first film soundtrack composition. Noel will enter production later this summer, with Glee's Chris Colfer attached to play Coward, and Sir Ian McKellen, Vanessa Redgrave and Jonathan Pryce all in talks to join the project. Wolf said: "I am so thrilled for my first film soundtrack composition to be about Noël Coward's early life, we both grew up in the same parts of south west London and began our journeys onto the stage and into writing at the same precocious age. "The script, director, Noel Coward Estate and the cast attached combined are already in perfect synergy to make this something magical, its an honour to be the next piece of such a legendary puzzle." Noel will be the second feature film from Joe Stephenson, who is directing from a script penned by Martin Sherman (Mrs Henderson Presents). > Exclusive: Watch another clip from new gay film ‘Getting Go’ > ‘Mrs Henderson Presents’ to become West End musical
