Harry Gregson-Williams revealed in a recent interview with Film Music Magazine that he is reuniting with director Antoine Fuqua on his next feature Southpaw. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams, Naomie Harris, Forest Whitaker, Victor Ortiz, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Miguel Gomez. The movie follows a welterweight champion who rises in his profession while his personal life falls apart. Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) has written the screenplay. Alan Riche (Starsky & Hutch, Family Man, Deep Blue Sea) and Peter Riche are producing the project with Todd Black & Jason Blumenthal (The Pursuit of Happyness, The Weather Man, Knowing, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3). Gregson-Williams has previously collaborated with Fuqua on 1997’s The Replacement Killers and most recently on The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington, which is set to be released later this month. Southpaw is currently in post-production and is expected to be released in 2015 by the Weinstein Company.
Gregson-Williams has also composed music for Michael Mann’s upcoming thriller Blackhat starring Chris Hemsworth. The film, which will also feature music by Atticus Ross, is set to be released on January 16, 2015 by Universal Pictures. The composer of such films as The Chronicles of Narnia, the Shrek series, Kingdom of Heaven and Man on Fire is also set to score the upcoming comedy drama Miss You Already. The film is directed by Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight, Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown) and stars Drew Barrymore, Toni Collette, Dominic Cooper, Paddy Considine and Jacqueline Bisset. The movie follows two female best friends whose relationship hits a rough patch when one character struggles to have a much longed-for baby and the other finds out she has breast cancer. Actress Morwenna Banks (Skins, Shameless) wrote the screenplay. Christopher Simon & Felix Vossen (The Sweeney, Pusher) are producing the project for Embargo Films. Miss You Already is currently shooting in the UK and is expected to be completed in 2015.
