james-hornerDirector Gabriele Muccino has announced that James Horner will be scoring the upcoming drama Fathers and Daughters. The film stars Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Aaron Paul, Quvenzhane Wallis, Diane Kruger, Jane Fonda, Octavia Spencer, Bruce Greenwood and Janet McTeer. The movie tells the story of a woman dealing with a crumbling relationship in the present and looking back on the relationship she had with her father, a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, 25 years earlier. Brad Desch has written the Black List-honored screenplay. Craig J. Flores & Nicolas Chartier (The Hurt Locker, The Company You Keep) are producing the Voltage Pictures production with Sherryl Clark for Busted Shark Productions. Crowe serves as an executive producer. Muccini has previously collaborated with such composers as Andrea Guerra (The Pursuit of Happiness, Playing for Keeps) and Angelo Milli (Seven Pounds). Fathers and Daughters is currently in post-production. No word yet on a release date.

    If i have a script how i can meet a director as “Gabriele muccino”

    • Justin Boggan says:

      You couldn’t. For legal reasons any director will tell you not to send them scripts. Nobody wants to get sued if they do a movie that seems, whether intentional or not, to be based on a script somebody sent them.

      You have to go through an agency, and at that one that is taking scripts, and even then it’s a crapshoot.
