Moby to compose music for “The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman”

PanARMENIAN.Net - Voltage Productions and Bona Fide Productions have set Moby to compose the music for The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, Deadline reported.

The film stars Shia LaBeouf, Evan Rachel Wood, Mads Mikkelsen, Melissa Leo and Til Schweiger, and is described as a gritty pulp romance.

The gig is Moby’s first venture into movie scoring, though his music has been featured in films from the Bourne Trilogy, Heat and Seabiscuit.

Albert Berger, Ron Yerxa, Craig J. Flores, and William Horberg are producing, with Nicolas Chartier exec producer along with Patrick Newall. Fredrik Bond is directing a script by Matt Drake, who is coming off Project X at Warner Bros.

The film shoots in May in Romania, and Voltage will sell foreign territories in Cannes.
