It seems The Fonze (you know, the dude with the leather jackets on Happy Days?) has cool progeny.

Henry Winkler’s son Max directed and wrote a debut film called Ceremony starring Uma Thurman. But that’s not even the cool part.

According to The Playlist, Eric D. Johnson of the Chicago-based band Fruit Bats is set to score the comedy. He’ll be receiving some help from legendary composer/musician/producer Van Dyke Parks, best known for his exemplary work with The Beach Boys, Grace Kelly, Joanna Newsom and many others.

In addition, the film, which focuses on a young man, an older woman and a wedding, boasts an equally-as-awesome soundtrack. It features music from Pete Townshend, The Animals and Kate Bush, plus a cover of Paul Simon’s 1972 track “Papa Hobo” sung by Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig.
