John Murphy (Sunshine, 28 Days Later…, Snatch, Kick-Ass) has been confirmed as the new composer of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. We previously reported earlier this week that Tyler Bates will be scoring the film based on information obtained several months ago. At that time, it was confirmed to us that Bates had written music prior to principal photography for use during the shoot (as he did for the Guardians of the Galaxy movies) and the composer was attached to score the movie, but Bates has departed the movie since. The Suicide Squad starring Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, David Dastmalchian, Idris Elba, Daniela Melchior, Steve Agee, John Cena, Storm Reid, Flula Borg, Nathan Fillion, Peter Capaldi, Pete Davidson and Michael Rooker will be released on August 6, 2021 by Warner Bros. Pictures.

    That was quick.

  2. Tor says:

    In other news, John Murphy is still scoring movies?

  3. Well that went pretty well.

  4. Marco Ludema says:

    Well, that was unexpected. My question still stands, will Price’s themes be re-used? Guess we’ll see.
