This past weekend, John Debney (The Passion of the Christ, Elf, Iron Man 2, The Jungle Book, Cutthroat Island) has started recording his underscore for the upcoming Netflix original film Jingle Jangle. The movie is written and directed by David E. Talbert (Almost Christmas, Baggage Claim) and stars Forest Whitaker, Keegan-Michael Key, Phylicia Rashad, Anika Noni Rose, Hugh Bonneville and Madalen Mills. The musical revolves around an eccentric toymaker, his adventurous granddaughter, and a magical invention that has the power to change their lives forever. As previously reported, Harvey Mason Jr. serves as the film’s executive music producer. Mike Jackson & John Legend (Underground) are producing the project for Get Lifted Film Co., alongside Talbert & Lyn Sisson-Talbert for 260 Degrees Entertainment, Kristin Burr (Christopher Robin, Dora and the Lost City of Gold) and David McIlvain (First Sunday). Jingle Jangle will premiere later this year on Netflix.

Debney’s other recent projects include Brenda Chapman’s fantasy drama Come Away, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and is currently awaiting a distribution deal.
