Brian Eno To Score New Heavenly Peter Jackson Film

Peter Jackson is making a new movie, and we can safely bet that there are no elves or hobbits or fun talking woodland creatures in this one. That's mostly because it's an adaptation of Alice Sebold's novel The Lovely Bones, and it has nothing to do with Middle Earth. Before you get disappointed, there is good news -- legendary musician/producer/composer Brian Eno will be scoring the film.

The plot of the novel and upcoming film goes a little something like this: a girl gets brutally raped and murdered, and then watches the aftermath unfold for her family from heaven, which makes Eno and his ambient music skills a perfect fit.

Eno's music has been featured in films in the past, though he hasn't been known for his film scores. His song "Deep Blue Day" was featured in Trainspotting, and more recently three of his tracks were featured on the 2004 flick Clean and two tracks for this year's Boarding Gate. But it won't be his first time scoring a film -- he's done several, including 2005's The Jacket, which starred Oscar winner Adrien Brody.

The Lovely Bones is set for a December 11, 2009 release, and stars Stanley Tucci, Susan Surandon, Mark Wahlberg and Rachel Weisz, among others.
