Daniel Pemberton (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Ocean’s 8, Birds of Prey, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) is currently recording his score for the upcoming drama The Trial of the Chicago 7. The film is written and directed by Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, The Social Network) and stars Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Jeremy Strong, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Frank Langella, Michael Keaton and Mark Rylance. The movie tells the story of the Chicago 7, a group of activists who were charged by the federal government with conspiracy, inciting to riot and other charges stemming from anti-Vietnam War protests that broke out during the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Marc Platt (La La Land, Bridge of Spies), Stuart Besser, Matt Jackson (End of Watch, Snitch) and Tyler Thompson (Everest, Black Mass) are producing the Cross Creek Pictures production. Pemberton has previously collaborated with Sorkin on the writer’s directorial debut Molly’s Game and also scored the Sorkin-scripted Steve Jobs. The Trial of the Chicago 7 is currently scheduled to be released theatrically on September 25, 2020 by Paramount Pictures, but according to recent reports, Netflix is in talks to pick up distribution rights for the movie.

Pemberton has also recently scored the mystery adventure Enola Holmes, which has been picked up by Netflix for a release later this year.
