The Killers Covering Joy Division For "Control"

NME reports the first news of a band other than New Order on the soundtrack to Control, the upcoming Ian Curtis biopic. The Killers will cover "Shadowplay" for the movie.

In other Control news, its director Anton Corbijin says he and Peter Hook (of Joy Division and New Order) get along fine . Hook had complained Corbijn interfered with New Order's work on the soundtrack's music, but the director says, "There is no argument whatsoever between New Order and myself or Hooky and me."

He calls him Hooky. He wouldn't do that if there was a problem, would he?
