Metric announces it will score David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis, and Emily Haines is excited about rat currency

Emily Haines, frontwoman for the band Metric, announced that the group will be scoring David Cronenberg’s new film Cosmopolis, which was shot in Toronto this past summer. Unless you were living under a rock, you know what Cosmopolis is, since the production resulted in multiple Robert Pattinson sightings around town (and we’re certain people enjoyed the Twilight films, so it was big news), and it features TIFF breakout star and fashionista Sarah Gadon. According to Exclaim! magazine, the band sent an email to fans announcing its collaboration with Howard Shore, the composer responsible for music in The Lord of the Rings and The Aviator, to name a few (Metric has worked with Shore before, recording a song for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack). The band took to their website to express excitement over this latest project: “We will be working with our favorite film composer, Howard Shore, on the score for a new David Cronenberg movie starring Robert Pattinson, minus the vampires! It’s an adaptation of the book Cosmopolis by Don DeLillo, and the themes are right in tune with the overall mood of the world at the moment. In Cosmopolis, the rat has become a unit of currency!” We’re not sure what the last part means (we’ll have to see the film when it’s released in 2012), but we’re on board with another Shore-Metric-Pattinson collaboration, without bloodsucking demons and glittery skin.
