update 09/01/10
Craig Armstrong & Massive Attack working on
Clash of the Titans score

It was rumoured that Matt Bellamy from the band Muse was going to be working on the Clash of the Titians score. Due to scheduling conflicts this is no longer going to happen.

Instead, director Louis Leterrier has brought onboard Massive Attack member Neil Davidge to provide additional music for the forthcoming film.

You can read more the full story over at the MTV Movie Blog or read the section below taken from the site.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- for questions about Muse, the soundtrack, who's doing it and all of that, Leterrier was more than happy to tell the story.

"It was not Muse ever, it was Matt Bellamy [who I spoke to about providing music]. I love Muse, I'm the biggest Muse fan ever, but I wanted something a little different," Leterrier explained. "[Matt] wrote a lot of stuff, but he started his tour. So not so long ago, he called me and he was like 'Louis, I'm so sorry. I have to be respectful to my audience and professional and I have to stop on 'Clash.'"

Even if Bellamy had participated, the task of scoring the movie was never going to be his alone. "It was too big of a score," Leterrier explained. "Craig Armstrong, who did my ['Incredible Hulk'] score-- Craig, he was going to write the score and Matt Bellamy was going to come in and do... maybe 30 minutes of music."

Now, new plans are in place. "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."
