2 Tone film being made

A film chronicling the 80s British 2 Tone movement is to be made.

Clubbed is set to star Maxine Peake, from Shameless, and will be directed by Neil Thompson. Shameless will also provide the executive producer of the film with its creator Paul Abbott filling the role.

It will be set in Coventry which was the home of the ska-influenced scene and saw the likes of The Specials, The Selecter and The Beat rise to fame. The release date is set as early 2008.
