Deadline is reporting that Harry Connick Jr. is writing and performing original songs for the upcoming romantic comedy The Islander. The singer/songwriter will also star in the movie, which revolves around a has-been musician who moves, sight unseen, to a remote cliffside house on an island, only to discover his new home has an unfortunate notoriety. Stelana Kliris (Committed) will direct the film, which also stars Mira Sorvino and Ali Fumiko Whitney. Kliris also wrote the screenplay and is producing the project with Keith Arnold (Spinning Man) and Steven Shapiro. The Islander is set to start shooting next month in Cyrpus.
