Alexandre Azaria has been tapped to score the upcoming sci-fi adventure Lockout. The movie is directed by James Mather & Stephen St. Leger and stars Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace, Peter Stormare and Tom Hollander. The film centers on a falsely convicted ex-government agent whose only chance of freedom is to accept a mission to rescue the president’s daughter from rioting prisoners at an outer space maximum security prison. Luc Besson co-wrote the script with the directors and also serves as an executive producer on the EuropaCorp production. Azaria has previously scored the production company’s two The Transporter sequels, which were also produced by Besson. FilmDistrict has picked up domestic rights for Lockout and is planning a theatrical release on April 13, 2012.
