Federico Jusid has been hired to score the upcoming romantic drama Life Itself. The film is written and directed by Dan Fogelman (This Is UsDanny CollinsCrazy, Stupid, Love) and stars Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde, Annette Bening, Antonio Banderas, Samuel L. Jackson, Olivia Cooke, Laia Costa, Mandy Patinkin, Sergio Peris-Mencheta and Alex Monner. The movie revolves around a number of characters whose lives intersect over the course of decades – from the streets of New York to the Spanish countryside. Fogelman is also producing the project with Temple Hill’s Marty Bowen & Wyck Godfrey (Twilight, The Maze Runner, I, Robot, The Fault in Our Stars) and FilmNation’s Aaron Ryder (Arrival, The Prestige). Life Itself is expected to premiere in 2018.

Jusid’s recent projects also include the crime drama Loving Pablo, which premiered at this year’s Venice and Toronto Film Festivals and is currently awaiting a domestic distribution deal. The composer’s other previous scoring credits include The Secret in Their Eyes, Kidnap, Neruda and Misconduct.
