“a pauper, a pirate, a poet”

Bono has recorded a cover of Frank Sinatra’s “That’s Life” (Kay/Gordon) for Neil Jordan’s upcoming thriller “The Good Thief”, starring Nick Nolte, Ryan Phillippe and Ralph Fiennes. The film is a remake of Jean Pierre Melville’s “Bob le Flambeur” (1995). The story revolves around an aging gambler and heroin addict planning a major Monte Carlo heist .

Neil Jordan’s previous work includes Mona Lisa, The Butcher Boy, Interview with the Vampire, Michael Collins and the Oscar winning The Crying Game.

“The Good Thief” is due March 2003. Other songs on the soundtrack (no release date known) include Leonard Cohen’s “A Thousand Kisses Deep” and Johnny Hallyday’s “Black is Black”. More info on Neil Jordan on his official website.
