The film is directed by Larry Charles (BoratBrunoThe Dictator) and stars Nicolas Cage, Russell Brand, Denis O’Hare, Ken Marino, Paul Scheer, Wendi McLendon-Covey and Rainn Wilson. The movie follows a handyman from Colorado who receives a vision telling him to go to Pakistan to capture Osama Bin Laden.

    David Newman on a major movie…and one that sounds like something that DeVito could have directed? Can’t wait.

    Just last week I was searching the web for confirmation of the assignment, but couldn’t find jack squat. I wonder where FMR found it.

    Anyway, sounds like an interesting prospect. Thinking back to some of his more ethnic-influenced pieces from “Serenity”, I could see an interesting score with big orchestral moments when needed, coming out of this.
