Composer Edward Shearmur has been tapped to score the family comedy Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2: Rodrick Rules. He is following Theodore Shapiro, who scored the first part last year and who is currently busy scoring the Russell Brand-starring comedy Arthur as reported here. The sequel is directed by David Bowers, who previously helmed the animation features Flushed Away (with a score by Harry Gregson-Williams) and Astro Boy (scored by John Ottman). Most cast members return for the sequel including Zachary Gordon, Rachael Harris and Steve Zahn. In the second part, wimpy kid Greg Heffley and his older brother must deal with their parents misguided efforts to make them bond.
