In an interview/full-blast geekdown with Rotten Tomatoes, director Chris Weitz shed some light on soundtrack happenings behind his upcoming Twilight sequel, “New Moon.”
Fortunately, I’m not at the stage where I have to turn anybody down yet, because everything is still kind of up in the air,” Weitz shared, “but I am surprised at some of the bands that have said they’re interested. It’s kind of great. The criterion will still always be what’s right for the movie at that given moment, but Thom Yorke is interested; we might, if we’re very lucky, get Kings of Leon to do something… it’s exciting to be able to have access to this kind of talent.
Shocking? Befuddling? Maybe the former, but a spooky Thom Yorke recording actually makes perfect sense here the more we think about it. Also, depending on how you pronounce the word tomato, writer and resident Twilight expert Jenn Yamato’s rhymes pretty well. You heard it here first.
