Jackson Talks 'Girlfriend'; 100 Monkeys Providing Soundtrack

Hollywood Crush interviewed Jackson about his movie 'Girlfriend' in which he stars, produces and now him and his band are doing the soundtrack/score for:

“You bet,” he revealed with a smile when we caught up with him recently and asked if his band would be on the soundtrack to his soon-to-shoot indie film “Girlfriend.” “100 Monkeys are going to do a lot of composition work as well. One thing all of us are really interested in doing is not just putting our songs in soundtracks, but actually composing soundtracks like Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead did for 'There Will Be Blood.' We’re all very much film oriented — three of us are actors, and all of us are composers — we love film, we think it’s an amazing medium. And music and film go so well together.”

"I really don’t want to go too much into the plot, because we’re trying to keep it under wraps; it’s a really amazing story," he explained. "It’s about a bizarre love triangle — very bizarre." (We recently learned his former girlfriend in the movie will be played by Shannon Woodward, who described the movie in a similar way when she spoke to Hollywood Crush last week: "'Girlfriend' is kind of like a strange love story," she said.)

As one of the lead actors in the movie, he's also one of the points in the triangle. “We’re going to be filming real shortly, right after 'Eclipse.' It’s a wild ride.”

And with 100 Monkeys on the soundtrack and composing the score, this “Girlfriend” just got a whole lot better looking. “Even before sound in movies, they had someone playing the piano to get that emotion,” Rathbone said of how he plans to unite his music and acting skills for the indie film. “We want the story to be what it is, and want people to be involved in the story; we want it to be kind of like classic Hitchcock.”
