Max Richter is scoring the upcoming indie ensemble drama Disconnect. The film stars Jason Bateman, Andrea Riseborough, Alexander Skarsgard, Paula Patton, Max Thieriot, Colin Ford, Michael Nyqvist, Hope Davis, Frank Grillo, Jonah Bobo and Haley Ramm. The movie marks the narrative feature directing debut of Henry-Alex Rubin who previously helmed the Academy Award-nominated documentary Murderball. Disconnect interweaves three potboiler storylines about people searching for human connection in today’s wired world of the internet. The drama is written by Andrew Stern (Return to Me) and produced by Mickey Liddell & Jennifer Hilton (The Grey, The Collector) for Liddell Entertainment and William Horberg (Milk, The Talented Mr. Ripley) for Wonderful Films. No word yet on when the film will be released.

Richter’s other upcoming projects also include the drama Lore directed by Cate Shortland (Somersault) based on the book The Dark Room by Rachel Seiffert. The film is set in 1945 Germany at the end of the war and follows five children whose Nazi parents have been taken into custody by the Allies. The German/Australian/Scottish co-production is produced by Benny Drechsel & Karsten Stoter for Rohfilm, Liz Watts (Animal Kingdom) for Porchlight Films and Paul Welsh for Edge City Films. Shortland has co-written the script with Robin Mukherjee. Music Box Films has recently picked up US rights for the film, which is rumored to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month.

As previously reported, the composer also has Ari Folman’s half-animation and half-live action sci-fi film The Congress starring Robin Wright and Paul Giamatti coming up.
