Mateo Messina (JunoBlockers, The Wrong Missy, Butter, Desperados, Superstore, Barely Lethal) is returning as the composer of the upcoming Netflix original film Tall Girl 2. The movie is directed by Emily Ting (Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong, Go Back to China) and stars Ava Michelle, Griffin Gluck, Sabrina Carpenter, Anjelika Washington, Luke Eisner, Clara Wilsey, Rico Paris, Jan Luis Castellanos, Johanna Liauw, Steve Zahn and Angela Kinsey. The romantic comedy follows Jodi as she lands the lead in the school musical, until the pressure sends her confidence – and her relationship – into a tailspin.

Messina has previously scored the 2019 original movie directed by Nzingha Stewart. Tracy McKnight serves as the project’s music supervisor. Tall Girl 2 will premiere on February 11, 2022 on Netflix.

Also coming up for Messina is Nathan Scoggins’ murder mystery What Remains and Aristomenis Tsirbas’ time travel movie Timescape.
