Joseph LoDuca has signed on to score the upcoming action adventure film Soldiers of Fortune. The film is directed by Maksim Korostyshevsky and stars Sean Bean, Christian Slater, Dominic Monaghan, Ving Rhames, James Cromwell, Freddy Rodriguez and Colm Meaney. In the movie, a group of wealthy thrill-seekers pay huge premiums to have themselves inserted into military adventures, only this time things don’t go exactly to plan. Soldiers of Fortune was shot last year around the Ukraine and is currently awaiting a release date.

LoDuca has recently scored the Starz mini-series Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, which aired earlier this year. The series is a prequel to last year’s Spartacus: Blood and Sand. The project created by Steven S. DeKnight and starring John Hannah, Lucy Lawless, Dustin Clare, Peter Mensah and Jaime Murray tells the story of the original Champion of the House of Batiatus: Gannicus, the first gladiator to become Champion of Capua. A Blu-Ray and DVD release is planned for later this year. A second season has already been announced to air in early 2012 and it is expected that LoDuca will return to score the project.

The composer has also been scoring the TNT drama Leverage starring Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Aldis Hodge, Christian Kane and Beth Riesgraf. The show follows a five-person team of professional thieves, computer experts and con-artists who use their skills to right corporate and governmental injustices inflicted on common citizens. The first three seasons of the show aired between 2008 and 2010 and the fourth season is set to premiere on June 26, 2011. Visit TNT’s official show webpage for more information.
