Austin Wintory (JourneyAssassin’s Creed: Syndicate, Captain Abu RaedErica, A Little Help) is scoring the upcoming drama Mickey Kelley. The film is directed by Alex Ranarivelo (American Wrestler: The Wizard, Bennett’s War, Running Wild) and stars Sean Patrick Flanery, Katrina Bowden and Dennis Quaid, as well as MMA fighters Renzo Gracie, Edson Barboza and Mickey Gall. The movie is set in 1990 and tells the story of the title character, one of the first American black belts in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, who gets pulled away from everything he loves and into an unsanctioned MMA tournament, where his dreams of providing for his family come to a halt with a split-second decision. Flanery and Alex Ranarivelo wrote the screenplay. Ali Afshar and Ava Rettke (The Stand at Paxton County) are producing the project for Forrest Films. Mickey Kelley is expected to be released later this year.

Wintory’s other upcoming projects include Giant Squid’s video game The Pathless, which is also set to come out in 2020.
