Henry Jackman has recently recorded his score for the upcoming drama Trial by Fire. The film is directed by Edward Zwick (Legends of the Fall, Glory, The Last Samurai, Blood Diamond) and stars Jack O’Connell, Laura Dern, Emily Meade, Chris Coy, Jeff Perry, David Wilson Barnes and Carlos Gomez. The movie is based on David Grann’s 2009 article in The New Yorker and tells the true story of Cameron Todd Willingham, a poor, uneducated devotee of heavy metal who is convicted of arson and triple homicide when a fire rips through his home and his children are trapped inside. Geoffrey Fletcher (Precious) wrote the screenplay. Zwick is also producing the project with Alex Soros. Jackman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, X-Men: First Class, Big Hero 6, Kong: Skull Island) has previously scored Zwick’s last feature, Jack Reacher: Never Come Back. Trial by Fire is currently in post-production and is expected to premiere later this year.

Jackman’s other upcoming projects include Shane Black’s The Predator and Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2.

    With so much good composer to succeed the James Newton Howard that Ed could choose, and he goes on the wave of Hollywood and gives one more chance to a Remote Control …

        Quit, Penderghast? NEVER! Give up yourself to defend these mediocre composers of RC, your pathetic deaf.
