Patrick Wolf to compose music for Noel Coward

Los Angeles: British singer Patrick Wolf has been tapped to score the music of an upcoming Noel Coward biopic.

`Glee` star Chris Colfer is set to play the gay playwright in `Noel`, a film which will focus on Coward`s early years and feature the people who influenced his career, and Wolf will create the music for the movie, according to a leading magazine.

"I am so thrilled for my first film soundtrack composition to be about Noel 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," Wolf said.

"The script, director, Noel Coward Estate and the cast attached combined are already in perfect synergy to make this something magical."

Production on the project is slated to begin in late summer.
