Clash of the Titans

Late last night we ran info about the rumor that Matt Bellamy from the band Muse would be doing supplemental music for the Louis Leterrier remake of Clash of the Titans. Quotes from Bellamy suggested that it wasn’t happening. Thanks to an interview Leterrier did today with MTV, we know for certain that Bellamy is not part of the equation. Instead, the film will have Craig Armstrong‘s score (as we pointed out last night) and supplemental music from Massive Attack.

“Craig [Armstrong], he was going to write the score and Matt Bellamy was going to come in and do… maybe 30 minutes of music,” Leterrier tells MTV. “Craig Armstrong is still doing the score and I called my friend Neil Davidge from Massive Attack to replace Matt for the areas that Matt was doing. So it’ll be Craig Armstrong and Massive Attack, which is pretty exciting.”

Additionally, there were rumors that Warner Bros. was interested in doing a last-minute conversion to 3D. That isn’t happening, says Leterrier. “We tried [to do 3-D for Clash]. We tried hard. We just won’t have time,” Leterrier says. “Maybe we possibly can re-release it in 3-D.”
