Laurent Eyquem is set to score the upcoming action thriller Momentum. The film marks the directorial debut of Stephen Campanelli who has been Clint Eastwood’s camera operator since The Bridges of Madison County and stars Olga Kurylenko, Vincent Cassel and Shea Whigham. The movie follows a thief who is trying to avoid both the law and a deadly gang of assassins. Adam Marcus & Debra Sullivan (Texas Chainsaw 3D) have written the screenplay. Anton Ernst who has previously collaborated with Eyquem on last year’s South African Oscar submission Little One is producing the film for Thaba Media and Azari Media. Momentum is set to start shooting in January against the backdrop of Cape Town. A release in late 2014 is expected.
Eyquem who was recently nominated for a World Soundtrack Award in the Discovery of the Year category for his score for Ron Maxwell’s Copperhead has also recently scored the upcoming drama Where the Road Runs Out directed by Rudolf Buitendach and starring Isaach De Bankolé, Juliet Landau and Stelio Savante. The movie marks first the feature film that was shot in Equatorial Guinea, the coastal country located in central Africa and follows a Rotterdam-based respected scientist and lecturer who decides to turn his back on the academic world and return to his African roots. A release date for the film is expected to be announced soon.
