Christophe Beck (Frozen, Ant-Man, Edge of Tomorrow, The Hangover, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) & Jake Monaco (Let’s Be Cops, Dumplin’, Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie) have composed the original score for the upcoming drama Walkaway Joe. The film marks the feature directorial debut of actor Tom Wright and stars David Strathairn, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Julie Ann Emery and Julian Feder. The movie tells the story of the unlikely friendship between a young boy searching for his father, and a wandering loner hiding from his past. Michael Milillo wrote the screenplay and is also producing the project with Rachel McHale (I Hate Kids) and Minor Childers (Ready or Not). Walkaway Joe is set to be released in select theaters and on VOD on May 8, 2020 by Quiver Distribution.

Beck also has Shawn Levy’s Free Guy (to be released in theaters on December 11, 2020) and Marvel’s Disney+ series WandaVision coming up. Monaco’s upcoming feature projects include Gil Junger’s Think Like a Dog, which is expected to be released later this year.
