mateomessinaMateo Messina is currently scoring the upcoming comedy The Angriest Man in Brooklyn. The film is directed by Phil Alden Robinson and stars Robin Williams, Mila Kunis, James Earl Jones, Peter Dinklage and Melissa Leo. The movie follows a stand-in doctor who mistakenly tells an obnoxious patient he has 90 minutes to live and then must locate him as the man goes on a whirlwind tour of the city. Daniel Taplitz (Breakin’ All the Rules) has written the screenplay and Bob Cooper (John Tucker Must Die, Mr. Woodcock), Tyler Mitchell (Lucky Number Slevin, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone) and Daniel J. Walker are producing the project. Messina’s score will feature the hang drum combined with the orchestra. Robinson has previously collaborated with some of industry’s top film composers, including James Horner (Field of DreamsSneakersAll the King’s Men) and Jerry Goldsmith (The Sum of All Fears). The Angriest Man in Brooklyn is currently in post-production and is expected to premiere later this year.

As previously reported, Messina (JunoButter) has also scored Kat Coiro’s comedy A Case of You starring Justin Long, Evan Rachel Wood, Vince Vaughn, Peter Dinklage and Sam Rockwell, which is set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival next month. Two more of the composer’s recent project are opening in theaters within the next few weeks, including Family Weekend starring Kristin Chenoweth and Matthew Modine, which is being released by ARC Entertainment on March 29 and the comedy drama The Story of Luke starring Lou Taylor Pucci, Seth Green and Cary Elwes, which opens on April 5.
