We're not known for our love of sporting events here at The Playlist, but ever since it was announced that Danny Boyle would be the man in charge of the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics (following in the footsteps of "Hero" director Zhang Yimou, who shepherded the Beijing events), we've been intrigued. After all, Boyle, as a recent Oscar winner for "Slumdog Millionaire," is a serious A-lister now, and could get any film he wanted made. And while he's kept his oar in, shooting thriller "Trance," with James McAvoy, last year (he'll finish post-production on it once the Olympics are done), it did mean giving over a year or so of his life to the event at a time when he's never had more cachet.

One thing is for sure: Danny Boyle fucking loves electronic music duo Underworld (nee Carl Hyde and Rick Smith). After using choice cuts of theirs for the soundtracks to "The Beach" and "Trainspotting" (where their propulsive "Born Slippy" was memorably used at the close of the film), they became full-on collaborators with the filmmaker, co-composing the score to his trippy sci-fi flick "Sunshine" (with John Murphy) and creating the steam punk-y score to his "Frankenstein" stage show that blew our minds earlier this year. Well it seems like he just can't get enough of those guys, as Pitchfork points out that he has just hired them to serve as the musical directors for the opening ceremonies for next summer's 2012 Olympic Games in London.
