U2, Bono Joining Gangs of New York

Posted on Thursday, October 11 @ 15:48:01 CEST by Macphisto

(Foxnews) -- The release date and fate of Martin Scorsese's epic Gangs of New York still hangs in the balance, but the Oscar-sure movie has gotten a new boost.

Dublin-based Irish rock group U2 is busily working on writing and recording the theme song for the film. The song will be the lead off on the soundtrack for Gangs, which otherwise boasts a score by Oscar winner Elmer Bernstein.

The addition of U2 and lead singer Bono makes sense since Gangs is quintessentially Irish in tenor. The film concerns the Irish mobs that ran New York at the turn of the century. Daniel Day-Lewis, who happens to be Irish, leads a cast that includes Cameron Diaz, Leonardo DiCaprio and Liam Neeson.

The big question remaining is whether or not Gangs of New York will have an Oscar-qualifying run before the end of the year. Even though the word has been that the film will not open nationally before Dec. 31, I am told that it will most definitely have the Oscar run if all systems are go in the next month.
