aaron-zigmanAaron Zigman has been hired to score the upcoming romantic comedy Baggage Claim. The film is written and directed by David E. Talbert and is based on his 2003 novel about a flight attendant who is determined not to show up to her baby sister’s engagement party without a fiance of her own and begins searching for a man while on the job. Paula Patton stars as the flight attendant, alongside Derek Luke, Adam Brody, Trey Songz, Taye Diggs, Christina Milian and Djimon Hounsou. Steven J. Wolfe (500 Days of Summer, Miss March) is producing the picture. Talbert’s previous directorial feature effort First Sunday starring Ice Cube featured a score by Stanley Clarke. Baggage Claim is set to be released on September 27, 2013 by Fox Searchlight.

Two movies scored by Zigman are currently playing in theaters: the Weinstein Company’s animated feature Escape from Planet Earth and Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor. Coming up for the composer among other projects  is Nick Cassavates’ indie drama Yellow, as well as the Tyler Perry-produced Peeples.
