Fall Out Boy compile Snakes On A Plane soundtrack

Samuel L Jackson in Snakes On A Plane

Story by Jack Foley

YOU’VE got to hand it to the filmmakers of Snakes On A Plane – they certainly know how to market their product.

Having turned a potentially laughable idea into one of the must-see movies of the summer, thanks to a vigorous internet campaign, they have continued to whet our appetites with the revelation that Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz has put together the soundtrack.

Wentz has assembled many of the artists on his Decaydance Records label, including one of the bands of the moment, Panic! At The Disco, as well as The All American Rejects.

Directed by David (Cellular) Ellis, Snakes On A Plane focuses Samuel L Jackson’s US Marshal, Neville Flynn, as he escorts a Mob witness on a Los Angeles-bound flight from Hawaii.

Prior to take-off, however, a Mafia boss pays airport security to sneak a time-release crate of 400 deadly serpents on board, which opens midair, sending the slithery creatures are everywhere.

Commenting on his involvement with the soundtrack, Wentz told the NME: “I think the whole concept behind the film is hilarious, and it’s something that just kept growing and growing, so I had to be a part of it.

“I called my friends and we got some remixes and here it is. To be honest, part of the reason I did this was to meet Samuel L Jackson.”

Fall Out Boy contribute the Tommie Sunshine’s Brooklyn Fire Retouch of their track, Of All The Gin Joints In All World, while Panic! At the Disco’s The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide Is Press Coverage gets a Tommie Sunshine’s Brooklyn Fire Remix.

The album is due for a UK release on August 15 to coincide with the release of the film. Find out more
