News: Justin Bieber to compose Evil Dead remake soundtrack
In a move that has sent shock-waves through the horror community, teenage heartthrob Justin Bieber has been approached by renowned horror director Sam Raimi and actor Bruce Campbell to write and record the soundtrack for the upcoming Evil Dead remake. The clean faced superstar, known for mega-hits like “Baby” and “One Less Lonely Girl”, is said to be over the moon with the decision. “I know I can add my own personal flavor to it,” FA Kreatif Entertainment weekly quoted Bieber as saying, “I’m glad my talent is finally being recognized by fringe players in the entertainment industry too”.
The mop-haired wonder is reportedly looking to “write an emotional power-ballad about a girl being sad that her boyfriend left her, while also being afraid that demons will possess her”, and hopes to perform this with R&B sensation Rihanna. “We feel like Rihanna and the Beebs are already partly lost in the woods,” said Raimi, “and they can bring horror to a whole new crowd of screaming 12 year old girls, a huge untapped market for horror. Fans of the original film shouldn’t be upset; they should be thanking us for making it accessible to non-traditional audiences”.
Asked if the move would affect the movies “R” rating, Raimi said that some of the more violent and overtly sexual material would be cut from the movie, and be implied rather than shown on screen. “We’re hoping to give it more of a Monsters Inc feel,” Bruce Campbell added.
The Evil Dead remake is expected to be released some time in 2013. Do you think this is a good move? Post in the comments below.
