jon-brionJon 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 MagnoliaEternal Sunshine of the Spotless MindThe Other Guys and Punch Drunk LoveTrainwreck 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.

  1. Justin Boggan says:

    That would be replacing a score by Joey Newman. The film’s been pushed back like two years now.

    • Jeff C. says:

      Neither has the film been pushed back nor has there been another composer attached before.

  2. Justin Boggan says:

    I just saw the article a few days ago about him being the previous composer hired to score it. It’s remarkable how the article has since disappeared and I can’t find it now.

    So I misremembered about it being pushed back. I must have been confusing that with the news articles goign back to 2013.

    Without the quotes around the film title, one might get the wrong impression about the nature of this article.
