Mark Mancina has signed on to score the upcoming thriller Penthouse North. The film directed by Joseph Ruben and starring Michael Keaton and Michelle Monaghan follows a photojournalist blinded in Iraq who falls prey to a criminal who believes there are stolen diamonds hidden in her apartment. David Loughery (Lakeview Terrace, Passenger 57) has written the screenplay and is also producing the project with Ruben, Jeff Sackman (American Psycho) and Michael Baker. Mancina has previously collaborated with director Ruben on the 1998 drama Return to Paradise and the 1995 action thriller Money Train. Ruben has also worked with such A-List composers as James Horner (The Forgotten), Jerry Goldsmith (Sleeping with the Enemy) and Elmer Bernstein (The Good Son) throughout his career. Dimension Films has picked domestic distribution rights for the thriller. No release date has been announced yet.

Mancina has also scored the upcoming Playstation 3 video game Sorcery, which is co-developed by The Workshop and SCE Santa Monica Studio. A soundtrack album is reportedly set to be released in a couple of months.

    Yes, Mancina said the game score is coming from La La Land Records, and MV hasn’t said otherwise in the FSM thread (where he’s replied to a number of questions).
