Mothersbaugh is also scoring the animated feature, “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.” What’s on the soundtrack otherwise, since it’s an “indie-rock loving” character? Barrymore apparently once told Interview magazine that potty-mouthed electro rapper Peaches would be featured in the film and producer Jim Diamond of Detroit recording studio Ghetto Recorders is supposedly recording some songs (the film was shot in Detroit).
Other groups whose songs will be featured in the movie include, the Nashville neo-soul rockers, the Turbo Fruits (evidently three songs are featured), Landon Pigg is also working on music and he will appear in the film as well as Ellen Page’s boyfriend who plays in a band. Update: Diamond wrote us back, he produced the Pigg tracks and the Turbo Fruits’ songs as well.
Does this mean Devo’s titular track, “Whip It” will surely make it into the film? Another Wes Anderson alum is also working on the film, music soundtrack supervisor Randall Poster.
The film also stars Marcia Gay Harden, Kristen Wiig, Juliette Lewis, Zoe Bell, rapper Eve, Jimmy Fallon, Alia Shawkat (hello, Maeby from “Arrested Development”), and Barrymore herself and is due summer of 2009.
Because I have been thinking about it since last year, these reveals will be even better.
If you like to be entertained and you enjoy seeing some of the best actresses working today, you should see this film. I thought she did more with this role than she did with Juno.
:) As you may or may not know, this is the tenth anniversary of the site.
Last Black Friday I revealed some of the best blinds from the history of the site.
Apparently Lions Gate put on a search to find Page’s “music-playing love interest” and message board speculation suggests this might be Pigg’s role (according to Wikipedia this is true, so it must be fact).
But he is on the movie’s IMDB page as well (as unreliable as that can be at times) and according to that site, Har Mar Superstar is also featured as a roller derby referee (he also had a small role in, “Lovely, Still” that appeared at TIFF earlier this year).
