New Joy Division Songs For Biopic
New Order to write all new material for Ian Curtis movie...
New Order will record all new songs as Joy Division for the upcoming Ian Curtis biopic Control.
Director Anton Corbijn has asked the surviving band members to write the soundtrack for the movie, which begins casting next year. The film is based on the book by Ian's widow Deborah.
Bassist Peter Hook said: "We were asked to do the soundtrack to the film which I thought was a f***ing great idea, for Joy Division to do the music for a Joy Division film because we've never really done a soundtrack before."
Curtis tragically committed suicide 25 years ago.
