Coldplay to work with Joy Division filmmaker

Anton Corbijn to direct Chris Martin and co.'s next video

Coldplay are set to work with film director Anton Corbijn, who won a Shockwaves NME Award earlier this year for directing ‘Control’, the biopic about Joy Division singer Ian Curtis.

The band’s spokesperson told NME.COM the director and the band will conduct the shoot for forthcoming single ‘Viva La Vida’, a song from the band’s forthcoming album ‘Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends’, on a Dutch beach.

Corbijn previously directed the video promo for the band’s 2005 single ‘Talk’, which you can see by clicking on the videolink below.

Speaking about the collaboration Chris Martin said, “We’re trying an experiment with him. It could be a disaster, but it could be OK.”
