Dave Grohl Goes To The Movies

Jan. 15 [8:00 EST] -- Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl, whose talents continue to unfold like the petals of a rose, has now taken a shot at film-scoring. Grohl will provide incidental music for director Paul Schrader's upcoming film "The Touch," which is due on February 14.

Grohl says he was drawn to the project because of Schrader (who scripted the Martin Scorcese classic "Taxi Driver," and directed the small-time rock-band saga "Light Of Day") and by the unusual cast.

"Christopher Walken, Tom Arnold who is absolutely hilarious, Bridget... Father Guido Sarducci makes a cameo... Janeane Garofalo is in it," Grohl said of the cast.

"It's actually a love story, it's a little twisted... It's not as twisted as anything you'd expect, it's nice. He asked me to score it, and I said phew! I never done this before, I don't know what I'm doing," Grohl added.

While "The Touch" is due in theaters next month, we're told we'll have to wait until April for the soundtrack

album, which will include Grohl solo tracks and duets with ex-X member John Doe, and Veruca Salt's Louise Post.

Meanwhile Grohl and his band are finishing up the second Foo Fighters album with former Pixies producer Gil Norton, and plan to have it out in the spring.
