Marcelo Zarvos (Fences, Wonder, The Good Shepherd) has recently scored the upcoming HBO documentary What’s My Name – Muhammad Ali. The 2-parter is directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, The Equalizer, The Magnificent Seven) and explores the boxing legend’s greatest triumphs and comebacks through archival footage and never-before-seen photos and footage from private collections of the Ali family and others. Fuqua is also producing the project with LeBron James & Maverick Carter (Warriors of Liberty City), Jamie Salter (Elvis Presley: The Searcher), Paul Wachter, Bill Gerber (A Star Is Born, Gran Torino) and Glen Zipper (Undefeated). The documentary will premiere in early 2019 on HBO.

Zarvos also has the drama The Best of Enemies starring Taraji P. Henson coming up. The movie has recently been picked up by STX Entertainment for a domestic theatrical release. The composer also has scored Michael Engler’s upcoming drama The Chaperone starring Elizabeth McGovern & Haley Lu Richardson, as well as Ondi Timoner’s Mapplethorpe, which premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival and has been acquired by Samuel Goldwyn Films for a release later this year. Zarvos’ current TV projects include Showtime’s Ray Donovan, which will return for its sixth season on October 28 and Showtime’s The Affair, which will return for its fifth and final season in 2019.

    Pretty sure Zarvos also scored Fuqua’s “Brooklyn’s Finest”.
