Arturo Sandoval is composing the original score for the upcoming crime drama The Mule. The film is directed by Clint Eastwood (Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby) who also stars in the movie alongside Bradley Cooper, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Pena, Dianne Wiest, Andy Garcia, Alison Eastwood, Taissa Farmiga, Ignacio Serricchio, Loren Dean and Eugene Cordero. The movie tells the true story of Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who signs on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. Nick Schenck (Gran Torino, The Judge) wrote the screenplay inspired by the New York Times Magazine article The Sinaloa Cartels’ 90-Year-Old Drug Mule by Sam Dolnick. Eastwood is also producing the project with Tim Moore (Sully), Kristina Rivera and Jessica Meier (The 15:17 to Paris), and Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin (All the Money in the World) and Bradley Thomas (There’s Something About Mary). Sandoval who is best known as a jazz trumpeter has previously scored several films, including the HBO original movie For Love or Country: The Arturo Sandoval Story, for which he received an Emmy Award and 2013’s At Middleton. The Mule is set to be released on December 14, 2018 by Warner Bros. Pictures. Visit the official movie website for updates.
