SINGAPORE -- "LaMB," Animax Asia's first original animated movie produced in high definition, will feature songs by popular French-Canadian pop punk band Simple Plan and American rock band the Click Five, Animax said over the weekend.

The Click Five's album will be showcased in the movie while Simple Plan will perform as an animated band in the film.

"I Can Wait Forever," released by Simple Plan this year, will headline the soundtrack for the multiplatform, multimedia release in November.

Animax Asia and Peach Blossom Media will produce an animated music video for the song to premiere in December on Animax channels across Asia as well as online.

Animax Asia also will produce a live-action music video for the Click Five's "Summertime," which will include action sequences from "LaMB."
