Rachel Portman is currently recording her score for the British comedy drama Still Life. The film is written and directed by the composer’s husband Uberto Pasolini and stars Eddie Marsan, Joanne Froggatt, Karen Drury, Andrew Buchan and Brosnon Webb. The movie follows a case worker who looks for relatives of those found dead alone. Pasolini is also producing the Red Wave/Embargo Films production with Christopher Simon & Felix Vossen (The Sweeney, Pusher). Pasolini who received an Academy Award nomination for producing The Full Monty has previously worked with Portman as a producer on such films as The Closer You Get, The Emperor’s New Clothes and Bel Ami. The composer’s music for Still Life is being recorded at Angel Studios in London. The movie is currently in post-production and is expected to be released in 2013.
As previously reported, Portman’s other upcoming projects include Diablo Cody’s untitled directorial feature debut starring Julianne Hough, Russell Brand, Octavia Spencer and Holly Hunter. The composer’s most recent film project Private Peaceful was released last month in the UK.
