Thomas Newman (American Beauty, The Shawshank Redemption, Finding Nemo, 1917, Skyfall, Road to Perdition) has recently been scoring the upcoming road-trip comedy Dog. The film marks the directorial debut of actor Channing Tatum and writer/producer Reid Carolin (Magic Mike, Logan Lucky) and stars Tatum himself, alongside Q’Orianka Kilcher. The movie follows a hard-charging former Army Ranger and his Belgian Malinois companion as they race down the Pacific Coast in hopes of making it to a fellow soldier’s funeral on time. Carolin also wrote the screenplay based on a story by himself and Brett Rodriguez who is producing the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) production with Gregory Jacobs (Edge of Tomorrow, The Knick) and Peter Kiernan (Fatherhood, 6 Balloons). Newman has previously scored the Jacobs-produced features The Good German, Side Effects and Let Them All Talk. Dog is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on February 18, 2022 by United Artists.

Newman’s other upcoming projects include John Madden’s war drama Operation Mincemeat, which has recently been picked up by Netflix for a release in North America and Latin America this year.
