Radiohead - Film Score

From the news room:

Warner confirms: Radiohead scores 'A Scanner Darkly'

In earlier reports, Radiohead were rumoured to do the score for the film 'A Scanner Darkly'. Later on these rumours were denied again. But now film distributor Warner Independent Pictures confirms that Radiohead is doing the score for Richard Linklater's upcoming film version of the Philip K. Dick novel. Keanu Reeves stars in the futuristic story of government espionage, which will be rendered in the rotoscope-animated style of Linklater's Waking Life. Originally slated for a fall 2005 release, the film is now due out in limited release July 7. [source: Entertainment Weekly]

No Scanner Darkly Score, but new Thom solo work

A day after telling EW that Radiohead would be scoring A Scanner Darkly, director Richard Linklater's film adaptation of the Philip K. Dick sci-fi novel, Warner Independent Pictures is singing a slightly different tune. Instead of a full-blown original score, the film will feature music by Radiohead, including a brand-new track from lead singer Thom Yorke's upcoming solo release. Warner Independent is still working out what music will make the cut, and couldn't say if the tracks would be all new or a mix of old and new. [thanks Jeremy]
