Rupert Gregson-Williams (Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Hacksaw Ridge, The Legend of Tarzan) has composed the original score for the upcoming comedy Murder Mystery. The film is directed by Kyle Newacheck (Game Over, Man!, Workaholics) and stars Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, Luke Evans, Gemma Arterton, Luis Gerardo Mendez, Shioli Kutsuna, David Walliams, Adeel Akhtar, John Kani, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Dany Boon and Terence Stamp. The comedy follows a New York cop and his wife who – after attending a gathering on a billionaire’s yacht during a European vacation – become prime suspects when he’s murdered. James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man, Zodiac) wrote the screenplay and is also producing the Happy Madison, Endgame Entertainment & Vinson Films production with Sandler, Allen Covert (Pixels), Tripp Vinson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) and James D. Stern (The Old Man & the Gun). Gregson-Williams has previously scored most of Happy Madison’s features starring Sandler over the last decade, including Click, Bedtime Stories and Just Go with It. Murder Mystery will premiere on June 14, 2019 on Netflix.

As previously reported, Gregson-Williams’ other upcoming projects also include Hulu’s Catch-22 (co-scored with Harry Gregson-Williams, to be released on May 17), the HBO/Sky series Catherine the Great, DreamWorks Animation’s feature Abominable (coming out on September 27, 2019), the Chinese war epic 800 (Ba Bai) and Frank Coraci’s comedy Hot Air.

    Not unexpected, but kinda disappointing. I thought maybe Sandler would have allowed Kyle Newacheck to bring over Steve Jablonsky for a little something different this time.
