Sean Lennon has been tapped to score the rich-brat-replete indie vampire film, "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Undead," according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The nepotism friendly comedy features other celebrity spawn like Dustin Hoffman's son, Jake Hoffman and Devon Aoki, sister of L.A. superstar DJ Steve Aoki (and daughter of Benihana steakhouse king Rocky Aoki) and Lennon's involvement all starts to make sense.
Lennon has been known to consort with the hipster Hollywood trashbag scene and his 2006 album Friendly Fire and its accompanying film (10 music videos with dialogue) inexplicably featured appearances by Aoki, Asia Argento and Lindsay Lohan (he's also been known to date indie, go-to skank Bijou Phillips - naturally she has a cameo in 'Undead').
The film, directed by first-time feature filmmaker Jordan Galland (formerly of rock band Dope Yume who toured with Cibo Matto - Lennon was once a touring member), also features appearances by Ralpha Macchio, Johnny Ventimilgia, Kris Lemche, and Jeremy Sisto and is about an unemployed actor (Hoffman) whose first big break is directing a bizarre off-Broadway version of "Hamlet" written by a undead Romanian (Ventimiglia, best known as chef Artie Bucco on "The Sopranos," who also wrote the script).
As mentioned above, Galland is also a musician and his myspace page has one song that looks like it's part of the 'Undead' soundtrack.
In related news, the aforementioned DJ Aoki's latest mixtape has caused a minor stir over at URB magazine who have inexplicably rushed to the album's defense after it was trashed by the indie-rock enthusiasts over at Pitchforkmedia.
