Jon Brion is reuniting with director Judd Apatow (The 40-Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up) on the upcoming comedy Trainwreck. The film is written by comedian Amy Schumer who also stars in the film alongside Bill Hader, LeBron James, Brie Larson, Tilda Swinton, John Cena and Ezra Miller. The movie follows a commitment-averse woman who is trying to get past her self-sabotaging ways. Apatow is also producing the project with Barry Mendel (The Sixth Sense, Bridesmaids, The Royal Tenenbaums). Brion has previously scored Apatow’s last feature This is 40 and appeared on screen in the director’s 2009 film Funny People. The composer’s other previous scoring credits include Magnolia, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Other Guys and Punch Drunk Love. Trainwreck is set to be released on July 17, 2015 by Universal Pictures.
As previously reported, Brion has also co-scored Rupert Wyatt’s The Gambler starring Mark Wahlberg, which will be released next week by Paramount Pictures.
