Radiohead to Score Film Version of Chuck Palahniuk's Choke

Radiohead to Score Film Version of Chuck Palahniuk's <i>Choke</i>
The Radiohead guys are scoring once again. Today it was revealed the band have written a number of new songs for the forthcoming film Choke, director Clark Gregg’s adaptation of the Chuck Palahniuk novel of the same name. Initially Radiohead had just planned to write a track for the closing credits but while speaking to BBC 6Music, Palahniuk said the group’s work can now be heard throughout the film.

"Clark Gregg... knew that I'd written Choke while listening to Pablo Honey, with 'Creep', over and over and over,” said Palahniuk, who also wrote Fight Club. "So Clark got Radiohead to contribute a song; to write a song for the very end of the movie, the final credits... Apparently Radiohead liked the movie so much, they’ve written the score, most of the ambient music throughout it. So it’s Choke — with the music of Radiohead.”

The Choke score follows several other recent film projects by Radiohead members. A little while back, Jonny Greenwood did the score for Paul Thomas Anderson’s Oscar-winning There Will Be Blood, and Colin Greenwood recently contributed to the soundtrack for Woodpecker.

As of yet, no firm release date has been set for the film Choke or a possible soundtrack.
