Michael Andrews is currently scoring the upcoming political thriller The Reluctant Fundamentalist. The film is directed by Mira Nair and stars Kate Hudson, Riz Ahmed, Kiefer Sutherland, Liev Schreiber, Martin Donovan and Om Puri. The film based on Mohsin Hamid’s novel with the same title follows a young Pakistani man working on Wall Street and chasing the American dream, whose life is fateful changed  by the September 11 attacks. William Wheeler (The Hoax) and Ami Boghani have adapted the material for the screen and Lydia Dean Pilcher (The Darjeeling Limited, The Namesake) is producing the film. The thriller marks the second international production of the Doha Film Institute following last year’s Black Gold, which was scored by James Horner. Nair has previously worked with composer Mychael Danna on several films including Monsoon Wedding and Vanity Fair, as well as with Gabriel Yared on the Hilary Swank-starring drama Amelia. The Reluctant Fundamentalist will be shopped to buyers at the Cannes Film Festival later this month.

Andrews’ most recently released films include Universal Pictures’ The Five-Year Engagement starring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt and the Duplass Brothers’ comedy drama Jeff Who Lives at Home starring Jason Segel, Ed Helms and Susan Sarandon.
