Muse not scoring CLASH OF THE TITANS
I hate to crush dreams on the weekends, but somebody has to do it. After fangirl-ing out last week with the news that UK band Muse could possibly be scoring CLASH OF THE TITANS, we now get official word from The Playlist that it's simply not so. It's been confirmed that frontman Matt Bellamy and/or the entire band was asked to contribute a portion of music to the film (not a full score), but even that is not to be, thanks to the band's packed schedule.
Instead of getting half an hour or so of music from the Muse boys, director Louis Leterrier now says that the film will be getting that same chunk of time from Massive Attack. Not a bad trade-off. The bulk of the scoring still belongs to Craig Armstrong, whose varied resume should making for interesting work on TITANS - he's previously worked on THE INCREDIBLE HULK, RAY, LOVE ACTUALLY, and MOULIN ROUGE! Nice credits.
