A couple of musical notes for you on two of 2012's most anticipated films.

First up, an interesting morsel has popped up over at the Dutch site RTL Boulevard in which singer Mick Harren says he's been asked by Quentin Tarantino to deliver a multilingual version of Frank Sinatra's classic "My Way." Uh...okay. Apparently, Tarantino stumbled across Harren while surfing the internet (lord only knows what he was actually looking for) and was apparently impressed by Harren's supposed resemblance to Michael Madsen. What that detail has to do with anything, we have no idea. But clearly, if Tarantino sticks with the game plan, he's going to once again put his own unique spin on things in the soundtrack department. You can listen below to Harren singing "Sweet Caroline" and then try and picture him taking on "My Way." That should be...interesting. Though we suppose it would be perfect and somewhat ironic end credit music.

Meanwhile, Wes Anderson is reteaming with his "Fantastic Mr. Fox" composer Alexandre Desplat for "Moonrise Kingdom." The news came from the Facebook page of conductor Conrad Pope who revealed, “Off to Avatar Studios in Manhattan to conduct the recording of Alexandre Desplat’s latest music for Wes Anderson’s newest film 'Moonrise Kingdom' -- a film with such a unique sensibility and style that it is as hard to describe as its charm is to resist.”

Earlier this fall during a Q&A in advance of the New York Film Festival 10th anniversay screening of "The Royal Tenenbaums," Anderson hinted a bit about what we might expect sonically from "Moonrise Kingdom" saying that it has "a big musical element, but there are not really songs in it." If that big musical element is provided by Desplat, we're totally sold. The '60s setting of the film should be an interesting playground for Desplat, and we'll be curious to see what influences he works in, particularly given Anderson's penchant for pop and rock from the era.

"Django Unchained" hits on Christmas Day next year while "Moonrise Kingdom" will land on May 25, 2012. [via The Film Stage]
