Coldplay seem to be secret movie fans to some degree. Their new album Mylo Xyloto was apparently originally going to be the soundtrack to a movie they were writing, but never finished. And you might have forgotten, but last spring the band got into the film production game, co-finacing the film "Ashes" starring Jim Sturgess, Ray Winstone and Lesley Manville. That film has at the helm "Road To Guantanamo" co-director and Ian Dury biopic "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll" helmer Mat Whitecross -- and he's been with with Chris Martin and the boys since day one. Whitecross was behind their first video "Bigger Stronger" and while the group have dabbled with other filmmakers over the years -- Anton Corbijn, Shynola, Grant Gee, Sophie Muller -- Mat has become a regular collaborator.
