Muse are set to appear on the soundtrack for the second 'Twilight' vampire film.

The band's frontman Matt Bellamy said that he has spoken to director Chris Weitz about him using 'I Belong To You (+Mon Coeur S'Ouvre A Ta Voix)' from latest album 'The Resistance' in the movie.

"I spoke to the director yesterday [and] he wants the track 'I Belong To You', the sort of vaudeville piano track," Bellamy told MTV News.

"He wants a rendition of that but the only thing with the new film is they want the songs to be exclusive to the film. So he's asking if I mind doing, or if we mind doing, an alternative version of it," he added. "I think it's alright – if it was one of the main tracks on the album I would never do it. But it's actually one of the weirder tracks on the album.

"[It's] one of the 'can't believe we got away with it' kind of tracks. I think it might be worth giving it a go because it's a track that might not get played live very often… one of the obscure tracks off the album so it might give that track some life that it wouldn't have otherwise."

Bon Iver, The Killers and Thom Yorke are all rumoured to be contributing to the soundtrack for the film which will be called 'New Moon'. The film is due for release on November 20.

Muse previously featured in the first 'Twilight' film with their fourth album track 'Supermassive Black Hole'.

Meanwhile, Muse are Number One in the UK album chart, with 'The Resistance' clocking up the biggest first week sales so far this year.
