John Debney (The Passion of the Christ, Iron Man 2, The Jungle Book, Elf, Hocus Pocus, The Greatest Showman) has been hired to score the upcoming Disney+ original movie Home Alone. The film is directed by Dan Mazer (I Give It a Year, Da Ali G Show) and stars Archie Yates, Ellie Kemper, Rob Delaney, Ally Maki, Kenan Thompson, Chris Parnell, Aisling Bea, Pete Holmes, Timothy Simons and Mikey Day. No plot details have been announced yet for the family comedy, which is based on the Chris Columbus-directed and John Hughes-written and -produced 1990 hit feature of the same title scored by John Williams. Mikey Day and Streeter Seidell wrote the screenplay. Hutch Parker (Logan, X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Dan Wilson are producing the 20th Century Studios production. Home Alone is expected to premiere next year on Disney+.

Debney’s recent projects include Netflix’s Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey and Brenda Chapman’s Come Away, both of which were just released earlier this month. The composer has also recently recorded his score for the upcoming live-action/animated hybrid feature Clifford the Big Red Dog. The film is directed by Walt Becker (Wild Hogs, Van Wilder) and features the voices of Darby Camp, Jack Whitehall, Sienna Guillory, Rosie Perez, Kenan Thompson and John Cleese. Jordan Kerner (Fried Green Tomatoes, The Mighty Ducks, The Smurfs) and Iole Lucchese of Scholastic Entertainment are producing the project. Debney has previously collaborated with Becker on the 2009 comedy Old Dogs. Clifford the Big Red Dog is set to be released in theaters nationwide on November 5, 2021 by Paramount Pictures.

    He wrote Lair, the best videogame score in history that beat even John Williams in his own style of composing.

    Nowadays he is doing Clifford, the Big Red Fucking Dog.

    Well, now I have no choice but to financially support this movie by buying the soundtrack when it comes out.
