Muse being on the Twilight Saga movie soundtracks has come to be sort of a tradition. It seems it's already out of the running and the band talks about the news here:
“Oh, it’s nothing to do with Stephenie, she’s totally cool,” says Howard, beginning to explain how Muse have potentially broken their Twilight hat-trick. “It’s the people in
the movie business, completely outside of the writers and the creative
types, the non-creative types I suppose are the people who are quite
hard to deal with in Hollywood, so it didn’t work out.”
As for the original tune in question, which remains untitled, Howard says it would have fit Eclipse like Edward on Bella — even though it wasn’t directly inspired by the books or movies.
“It was a love song, so it’s a personal song, and it wasn’t really to do with the films. But it was sounding good,” he says.
Muse still plans to release it, says Howard, even if you won’t hear it on the Eclipse soundtrack. (Maybe you can just play it over the make-out scenes once the flick hits DVD.)
“Yeah, yeah, we sure will [release it]. I mean, it was great. We worked on it in Australia, we were ready to record, we were going to do
some recording with Butch Vig, so we might still do it,” he says. “I’m
sure the song will definitely come to life for real at some point, but
I think for this film it’s not going to happen.”
