Christophe Beck and Dead Mono have composed the score for the upcoming indie romance The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman. The film is directed by Fredrik Bond and stars Shia LaBeouf in the title role of Charlie who falls for a Romanian beauty, played by Evan Rachel Wood, whose unreachable heart has its origins in her violent, charismatic ex. Mads Mikkelsen, Til Schweiger, Rupert Grint and James Buckley are co-starring. Matt Drake (Project X) has written the screenplay. Albert Berger & Ron Yerxa (Little Miss Sunshine, Cold Mountain), Craig J. Flores (300) and William Horberg (The Talented Mr. Ripley) are producing for Voltage Productions and Bona Fide Productions. The Swedish music team of Dead Mono has previously collaborated with Bond on a number of commercials he directed. As reported earlier this year, Moby was originally attached to score the picture. The Necessaru Death of Charlie Countryman is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2013.

Beck’s music is also featured in the comedy The Guilt Trip starring Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen. The film was released earlier this week and is now playing in theaters nationwide.

    I know this is an odd place to ask a question but I have to ask if you guys know what song is played in the movie when Charlie has just left the airport in Bucharest and is in the taxi. It’s only about 30 seconds of a song but it’s this elusive sound that is driving me insane trying to find. I really hope someone reads this and knows. Either way it was an awesome movie, not super strong and well put together but it was a beautiful movie to behold even if it wasn’t all there.
