Ilan Eshkeri is scoring the upcoming thriller Ashes. The movie stars Jim Sturgess, Ray Winstone, Lesley Manville (Another Year), Luke Evans (Robin Hood) and Jodie Whittaker (Attack the Block). The film is directed by Mat Whitecross (The Road to Guantanamo) who also co-wrote the screenplay with Paul Viragh (Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll). Esther Douglas and Fiona Neilson are producing. Coldplay’s Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion¬†and Chris Martin are executive producers on the project. No plot details have been revealed yet, but the movie has been described as a contemporary film noir. The British thriller is currently in post-production and no release date has been set yet.

As previously reported, Eshkeri also has the Ralph Fiennes-directed drama Coriolanus coming up, which will be released on December 2, 2011 by the Weinstein Company. The composer also recently finished work on the action spoof sequel Johnny English Reborn directed by Oliver Parker and starring Rowan Atkinson, Rosamunde Pike, Dominic West and Gillian Anderson. The score was recorded with the London Metropolitan Orchestra (visit the orchestra’s blog for more details). Universal Pictures will be releasing¬† the movie on October 28, 2011 in the US, three weeks after the UK opening date. To learn more about the comedy, visit the official movie webpage.
