I swear I’m not following the director of the 2nd installment of the Twilight series around or anything, but the guy keeps talking about Radiohead, so whatevs. We previously reported that New Moon director Chris Weitz namedropped Thom Yorke recently as an artist interested in contributing music to his forthcoming vampire romance flick and, as P4K’s Tom Breihan noted, this looks suspiciously similar to when McG falsely implied Yorke was making music for Terminator Salvation. Well, now Weitz is dropping names again, but this time he sounds a bit more confident.
“There are 450 visual effects shots to complete, in addition to the score and the movie’s soundtrack, which [Weitz] says will feature songs from Radiohead, Muse and Band of Skulls, among others,” LA Times’ Gina McIntyre wrote in a behind-the-scenes piece on New Moon.
So it’s safe to say that you will be hearing the voice of Thom Yorke in this movie, but whether it’s a new solo song (such as “The Present Tense” from this weekend’s Latitude festival) or not, remains to be seen or heard.
