The River King in Ireland

Hot off the press. Eddie McIlwaine of the Belfast Telegraph reports:

Singer-songwriter Lee Rogers (28), who plays the Pavilion in Belfast tonight is looking forward to the release of the movie The River King here in his native city.

His song How Will I Sleep? is on the soundtrack of the supernatural thriller based on the bestseller of the same name by American writer Anne Hoffman.

The movie, starring Ed Burns and Jennifer Ehle, was shot on location in Novia Scotia by Myriad Films.

It is the story of how the spirit of a little boy found murdered in a river bed helps detectives track down his killers.

"Apparently the mood of my song which is a bluesy composition suited the atmosphere of the film," explained Lee.
The River King is expected to be released in the next couple of months and will be at a cinema near you in Belfast.
