The musician and the film score ... the notion has always been around, but seems to be featured in the media a lot lately with the work of Trent Reznor (Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network), The Chemical Brothers with Hanna, Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood many contributions (We Need to Talk About Kevin, There Will Be Blood and Norwegian Wood)
Now comes fresh news that Jonsi will add another one to his list, with director Cameron Crowe. No word on what the movie is or when it will come out, but The Playlist tells us that it will be influenced by director Preston Struges ("The Lady Eve," "Sullivan's Travels"). This is in addition to the recent We Bought a Zoo?
"But this just seems to be the beginning of their working relationship. We spoke to Crowe yesterday via email, and after hearing about it through the grapevine, he confirmed to us that the Sigur Rós frontman and solo artist would also be scoring his next film, a currently untitled comedy. "Yep, it's with Jónsi," he told us," reads the word from The Playlist.
Jonsi is no stranger to film scores himself ... he's worked on music that made its way to The Life Aquatic, How to Train Your Dragon and 127 Hours, and even worked with Cameron Crowe before when Sigur Ros classics “Svefn-G-Englar,” “Agaetis Byrjun” and “The Nothing Song” were used in the film Vanilla Sky; as well as the most recent We Bought a Zoo?
