Henry Jackman (Wreck-It-Ralph, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, X-Men: First Class, Big Hero 6, Kong: Skull Island) has recently scored the upcoming thriller Mosul. The film is marks the directorial debut of screenwriter Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z, Deepwater Horizon, The Kingdom) and tells of the true story of an elite police unit made up almost entirely of native sons of Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, who fought to liberate it from 6,000 ISIS militants who overran it in 2014. Carnahan also wrote the screenplay based on articles by Luke Mogelson. Anthony & Joe Russo (Avengers: Infinity War & Endgame), Jeremy Steckler & Dawn Ostroff (The Old Man and the Gun, Only the Brave) are producing the project. Jackman has previously collaborated with the Russo Brothers on Captain America: The Winter Soldier & Civil War and will also score the Russo-produced Netflix movie Dhaka starring Chris Hemsworth. Mosul is expected to premiere later this year.

Jackman also has Rob Letterman’s Pokemon: Detective Pikachu (to be released on May 14) coming up. The composer has been recording his score last week at AIR Studios in London.
