Radiohead produce new material for the big screen adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s novel Choke.
Radiohead have written new material for the big screen adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk’s novel ‘Choke’.
Palahniuk, who novels include ‘Fight Club’ and ‘Snuff’, said the band agreed to produce music for the score after enjoying the movie.
‘Choke’ is the story of Victor
Mancini, a sex addict who works as a reenactor of Colonial Times. To
support his hospitalised mother, Victor cons others by intentionally
choking at restaurants to get money from his rescuers.
Speaking to reporters, Palahniuk said:
“Clark Gregg, who directed the movie, knew that I’d written Choke while listening to [Radiohead’s 1993 debut album] Pablo Honey, with ‘Creep’, over and over and over. So he got Radiohead to contribute a song; to write a song for the very end of the movie, the final credits. Apparently Radiohead liked the movie so much, they’ve written the score, most of the ambient music throughout it. So it’s ‘Choke’ – With The Music Of Radiohead.”
Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood recently scored the soundtrack to Paul T. Anderson’s Oscar winning film ‘There Will Be Blood’.
‘Choke’ is expected in cinemas later this year.
