Unreleased George Michael music set for new 'Last Christmas' movie

Unreleased George Michael music is set to feature in a new movie titled 'Last Christmas'.

While the star's classic festive single of the same name is set to appear in the movie, it will also premiere brand new unreleased material by the late British icon, who died on Christmas Day in 2016 at the age of 53.

According to Variety, Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding have been cast in the lead roles in the Paul Feig-directed romance. The upcoming screenplay has been penned by Emma Thompson and Bryony Kimmings, but details about the plot have not been fully revealed. Feig produced the movie through his Feigco Entertainment company, with Emma and David Livingstone serving as producers on it.

Meanwhile, along with having new music featured in the movie, a dance album from the music star is also reportedly set for release.

The singer-songwriter started working on the album in 2011 and it is currently being prepared for a posthumous release.

Michael's friend and creative partner David Austin, has said that it will "definitely see the light of day," adding:

"There are dance tracks he recorded and there are some finished products. There are some beautiful finished masters there."

Speaking about the dance album in 2011, Michael said: "For this album I'm going to be working with either gay or gay-friendly artists, and it'll be a mixture of tracks sung by me and others by young gay artists - possibly unknown ones.

"And I've lined up some really great dance producers to work on it too, so it'll be a pretty stunning record. I have to say that gay men's relationship with dance music probably doesn't end at the same time as straight people's does!"

An exact release date for the new dance album, however, has not yet been given.
