David Heyman, producer of the Harry Potter movies recently spoke with the Melbourne Sun about Jarvis Cocker, Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood and drummer Phil Selway and their parts as The Weird Sisters in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and had this to say: "In the film you'll see The Weird Sisters play regular instruments that are a little bit strange, like bagpipes with really long pipes and guitars with three necks." Mr. Heyman also comments that he was "quietly confident" that Daniel, Emma and Rupert "would be back again and maybe beyond."
According to the article:
Cocker and Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood and drummer Phil Selway will be seen as part of a wizard rock band called The Weird Sisters, which plays at a Yule Ball held in the Hogwarts Great Hall, which is transformed into a shimmering silver wonderland with a stage made of ice.
The trio got the gig after Scottish band Franz Ferdinand, which picked up two top awards Best Group and Best Rock Act at this week s Brit awards, pulled out late last year citing scheduling conflicts.
The band looked really cool and it was great that they got real rock n roll people, Rupert Grint, who plays Harry s friend, Ron Weasley, said on the set at Leavesden Studios.
