Alex Wurman has recently finished scoring the National Geographic Entertainment-produced documentary The Last Lions. In the movie, filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert follow the epic journey of the lioness named Ma di Tau (“Mother of Lions”) as she battles to protect her cubs against the daunting onslaught of enemies to ensure their survival. The documentary is narrated by Academy Award-winner Jeremy Irons. The Last Lions marks Wurman’s first documentary after scoring the Oscar-winning 2005 hit The March of the Penguins. The movie recently premiered at the Palm Springs Film Festival and is slated to be released on February 18 in select cities. Check out the film’s trailer below.

Wurman also has the crime drama The Convincer coming up. In the film, a salesman’s search for a rare musical instrument sets off a series of dramatic consequences. The movie is directed by Jill Sprecher who previously collaborated with Wurman on 2001’s Thirteen Conversations on One Thing. The Convincer stars Billy Crudp, Lea Thompson, Greg Kinnear and Alan Arkin and will premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
