Daft Punk’s Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo and Eric Chedeville are resurrecting Le Knight Club for a forthcoming feature film called Gates of the Sun, which features Mike Tyson.
The film is about “an Algerian secret agent who has to destroy an undercover paramilitary organization that plans to strike against the country and its people.” according to the film’s IMDB page.
De Homem-Christo and Chedeville are listed on the film’s cast and crew page on IMDB, with Chedeville credited for the film’s theme song and De Homem-Christo listed under additional music.
Eric Chedeville, who founded the label Crydamoure alongside Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo in the 90s, explained their contribution via Les Rocks and Google translate: “Guy-Man has made music in this film. Initially it had to be for a fight scene with Mike Tyson, but now it’s the final scene inside a club. It should not exceed two minutes, I think. At least 80% of the soundtrack was made by the two composers Matteodo Patrick and Jean-Jacques Ipino.
“And the piece will not be signed “Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo” but “Knight Club”, the nickname that we used at the time for Crydamoure. The director is a friend of Guy-Man, and he wanted to give him a hand.”
Could this be a precursor to a return for Le Knight Club and Crydamoure – quite possibly.
Update: We’ve managed to track down a trailer from the film which is out this March.
