Vampire in Thom Yorke’s future?
The most savage war currently being fought on the internet is that between Harry Potter fanatics and Twilight apologists. “Harry Potter is so lame because it’s about dumb magicians! LOL!” “Twilight like sucks and is for girls! Go Gryffindor!” You know the sort of thing.
Reel News tends towards the Twilight camp, so we were happy to hear that Radiohead – not the sort of band you’d associate with either franchise – may be well disposed to their music appearing in the next film based on Stephenie Meyer’s vampire series.
“I am surprised at some of the bands that have said they’re interested,” Chris Weitz, director of The Twilight Saga: New Moon, pondered. “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.”
Mr Yorke, lead singer of the band, has not actually commented, so the rumours may all be so much waffle.
