The movie will be directed by James Erskin (One Night in Turin), and is starring Noel Clarke (Kidulthood), Martin McCann (Killing Bono, Clash of The Titons), Martin Compston (Disappearance of Alice Creed), Craig Conway (Descent, Dog Soldiers, Doomsday). Shooting will begin in June this year.
The tracks feature on Saxon's new album Call to Arms and have been written specially for the film.

Hybrid Theory producer Lionel Hicks sums up the collaboration: "It's great to have a band like Saxon involved in the soundtrack to this film. These new songs really capture the mood of the film, and everyone working on it is thrilled."
