Brian Tyler and Keith Power have taken over scoring duties on the upcoming thriller Criminal. The movie is directed by Ariel Vromen (The Iceman) and stars Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman, Tommy Lee Jones, Ryan Reynolds, Alice Eve and Gal Gadot. The film centers on a dangerous criminal who has the memories and skills of a dead CIA agent implanted into his brain in order to track down and stop an international terrorist. Douglas Cook & David Weisberg (The Rock, Double Jeopardy) wrote the screenplay. Chris Bender (The Butterfly Effect, We’re the Millers), J.C. Spink (A History of Violence, Arthur), Mark Gill (Olympus Has Fallen) and Matt O’Toole (Before I Go to Sleep) are producing the project. As reported last year, Haim Mazar was previously attached to score the film. Criminal will be released on January 22, 2016 by Lionsgate.
Tyler’s upcoming feature projects also include the drama Truth starring Robert Redford & Cate Blanchett, the sequel Now You See Me: The Second Act and D.J. Caruso’s The Disappointments Room starring Kate Beckinsale. He also continues to score CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 with Power, Scorpion with Tony Morales and Sleepy Hollow with Robert Lydecker.
