Bruce Springsteen In The Wrestler

The reason why Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler has the un-popular position of closing the Venice Film Festival, is because the film is waiting on a new song written and performed by Bruce Springsteen. The song was written for the closing credits and is also titled The Wrestler. Aronofsky calls the song "beautiful" ... "wonderful acoustic piece".

"Makes me choke up every time i hear it," Aronofsky writes on his blog. "He really captured the spirit of the film and Mickey [Rourke]'s character in the piece."

It has already been reported that Slash (formerly from Guns and Roses) provided some guitar on Clint Mansell's score.
