Muse to score CLASH OF THE TITANS?

Apparently, someone let the team behind CLASH OF THE TITANS know the quickest way to get two more butts into theater seats when the film opens on March 26 - get Muse to score the flick. Those two butts? Myself and your soundtrack reviewer, Allison Loring. If someone gets Mutemath to score PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS, I'll know our iPhones are being wire-tapped and music directors everywhere are on to us.

The UK trio have apparently been asked to score the remake, starring Sam Worthington, and it looks as if their involvement is simply down to a matter of scheduling.

Frontman reportedly Matt Bellamy said, "It's something we're up for doing...It's just a case of timing because we're always on tour." Knowing smiles all around from Muse fans, as this is certainly true - the boys are currently making their way through Korea and Japan this month, followed by a series of dates in Australia to end January, along with February dates in Singapore and Hong Kong. They are then embarking on a long-awaited US and Canada tour at the end of February. That gives them a couple of weeks to bust out a score before they rock faces on our continent.

This would be the band's first venture into soundtrack scoring. Some of their pre-existing work has appeared on various soundtracks, most notably "Supermassive Black Hole," which was featured on the TWILIGHT soundtrack. Bellamy commented, "CLASH OF THE TITANS is the first interesting offer we've had for film work...We're definitely interested in writing for films at some point when we get a break from the road."

Fingers crossed.
