Blur are set to be the stars of a new movie.

The reformed Britpop group will be the subject of a feature-length documentary, which will show their steady rise to fame and the arguments that forced them to split.

A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Everyone in the Blur camp is really excited. There's plenty of material to fit in - their first five years of struggle, their Britpop heyday with all the drinking and their gradual and bitter demise."

The band - Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree - announced they were reuniting last year after watching old clips of their shows on video sharing website YouTube.

Guitarist Graham said: "I encountered that magic of Blur performances again through sites like YouTube."

Frontman Damon added: "I went online and watched a load of our old stuff just to remind myself what we were like. It just felt it was right again."

The band haven't recorded together since 2002 - when Graham quit the group during the recording of their 'Think Tank' album - and have all pursued different career paths.

They will play London's Hyde Park on July 3 and will headline one night of the Glastonbury music festival in the UK this summer.
