    Bono and The Edge from U2 are collaborating with director John Carney on music for a new film.

    What film is that? Relax, we'll tell ya!

    The film is called Sing Street and it takes place in Dublin in the '80s and Carney has said that the U2 twosome has been "extremely helpful in discussing the musical aspect of the film and what the sound is going to be like. It's going to be set in the '80s; obviously, U2 were extremely prolific then, so they'll bring that, and they've just been great sounding boards. Bono has been very helpful with character and story as I've sort of pitched the project to him over the last few months."

    The U2 twosome –try saying that 10 times and fast-- could even end up writing a few songs for the movie. We shall see.

    What is your favorite U2 song?
