Sigur Rós Front Man Jónsi Will Score Cameron Crowe’s Next Movie

Cameron Crowe's We Bought a Zoo — starring Matt Damon as the head of a family that moves into a run-down zoo — will be scored by Jónsi, the Sigur Rós front man who dropped his most recent solo album, Go, last year. (As the Playlist points out, Crowe previously used Sigur Rós songs in Vanilla Sky. Also, here's a fun quote from Cameron about the shoot: "It was a music-filled experience. Matt Damon is a big fan of all this music, so we played some of the music on his first day on set, and he said, ‘Keep it coming man, keep it coming.'") Out of respect for Jónsi's involvement, Matt Damon and Cameron Crowe will be known as Matt Damón and Cameron Crówe for the duration of Zoo's press cycle. [Playlist/Indiewire]
