GLASGOW, Scotland, Dec. 19 (UPI) -- Scotland's most successful rock band Franz Ferdinand has dropped out of appearing in, and writing music for, the latest Harry Potter movie. reported Sunday the band pulled out of the project, because of "scheduling difficulties."

While singer Alex Kapranos seemed enthusiastic about being involved with the movie, some industry observers said the Harry Potter project caused tension with the rest of the band because some thought it was bad for their image.

However, the band's spokesman has dismissed that theory as "nonsense," although there have been reports of a fight among band members while the group was on tour in France.
