British rocker Paul Weller is putting his songwriting skills to use by penning his first movie soundtrack.

The former The Jam frontman released his 11th solo album, Sonik Kicks, in March (12) and he's already working on his next top-secret project, writing tracks for a new British movie.

He tells NME magazine, "I've been working on a soundtrack thing, for a British film. I don't wanna say too much about it yet 'cos (sic) it's early stages, but I'm really excited about that, about doing a whole soundtrack."
