Skrillex has a weird haircut, a ton of money, and three Grammy Awards. Now he could be on his way to an Oscar. The EDM artist is collaborating with Cliff Martinezā€”who most recently scored Drive, among many other filmsā€”to make an original score for Harmony Korineā€™s upcoming feature Spring Breakers.

The man also known as Sonny Moore has reportedly been working on the score while touring the world, composing what a press release calls ā€œmenacing pads, stabs, and beatsā€ for the movie. In other words, anyone not on the EDM ā€œwubā€ train, buy aspirin now.

Spring Breakers, which is due out in 2013, stars Vanessa Hudgens, James Franco, Gucci Mane, Selena Gomez, and Ashley Benson. It tells the tale of four drunk and drugged college girls who, prompted by Franco as a rapper named ā€œAlien,ā€ see just how far they can push their spring break.
