July 28 [7:55 EDT] -- The Verve Pipe and Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland will join Tori Amos and former Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell on the soundtrack to the upcoming film adaptation of Charles Dickens' "Great Expectations."
Scott Weiland's contribution, a solo effort while his STP-mates work with singer Dave Coutts on another project, will also feature the touch of producers extraordinaire the Dust Brothers.
As we first reported in May, Amos and Cornell were the first names to surface in connection with the soundtrack. The Dickens' film and corresponding album will feature Cornell's first post-Soundgarden recording project. Cornell contributes a track called "Sunshower" which he recorded with members of the band Eleven.
"Great Expectation's" modern-day make-over is set to hit the big screen this winter, and stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ethan Hawke, and Robert De Niro.
