Silvestri has previously scored all of Zemeckis’ features dating back to 1984’s Romancing the Stone, including Back to the Future, Forrest Gump and The Polar ExpressThe Women of Marwen is set to be released on November 21, 2018 by Universal Pictures.

Silvestri also has Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One coming out this week. The composer has also recently recorded his score for Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, which will be released on April 27.

    Although expected these are good news indeed. Could anyone imagine a Zemeckis movie without a Silvestri score?
