(Gibson) News out of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario is that the latest Irvine Welsh film adaptation should be a treat for music fans. Based on a story by the Trainspotting author, Ecstasy is being helmed by director Rob Heydon and shot in the Canadian city. The Sault Star reports that the film has several musical connections.

Chief among those connections is a killer soundtrack, featuring Arcade Fire, Brian Eno, Paul Oakenfold, Aphex Twin, Deadmau5 and Primal Scream. According to Heydon, Welsh's prior success helped pave the way to some of the music rights. "I think based on the success of Trainspotting it was easier to get the music than the average Canadian film," he said. "It'll surprise a lot of people."

Sharp-eyed viewers will also catch a glimpse of a Canadian musical legend in the film's cast. Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson reportedly plays an "unconventional physician" in the movie. more on this story
