Jarvis Cocker to write next Harry Potter soundtrack

The Sun reports that Jarvis Cocker has been signed to write the soundtrack for the movie Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire. He is also expected to make a cameo appearance.

Although the previous Harry Potter films were scored by the American composer John Williams, movie bosses decided to bring on board a trendy British musician.

As the Sun reports:

“New Potter director MIKE NEWELL wanted to make sure his movie appealed more to a generation of music-mad teens.

He asked DANIEL RADCLIFFE and the other young stars to draw up a shortlist of candidates. Jarvis bagged the job because of his reputation and professionalism. “

A source from Warners Bros. was quoted as saying:

“Everyone here is really excited about Jarvis being involved in Goblet of Fire. He is a very talented musician who is a big fan of movies and knows exactly how they work. You may just think Jarvis is the bloke in specs who fronted Pulp but he is a man with many hidden depths.”

The former Pulp frontman studied film at Central St Martin’s in London and once said: “I think I’ll end up as a film-maker eventually. It’s just a question of when. You always wish that people you like knew when to give up, but they never do.”
