R.E.M., Michael Jackson, ODB, Ice-T, Bruce Springsteen, Al Green, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, Blondie, B-Real, Elvis Costello...

R.E.M. will be writing the score and a new song for the forthcoming Milos

Forman film "Man On The Moon," starring Hole singer Courtney Love

and actor/comedian Jim Carrey, according to the band's manager Bertis Downs. The

movie, which will be out next fall, is a biopic about the late comedian Andy Kaufman and

took its title from an R.E.M. song originally included in 1992's Automatic for the

People LP. It will be the first time R.E.M. will score a film.
