Joel P West has recently been recording his score for Marvel Studios’ upcoming feature Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The film is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and stars Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Tony Leung, Michelle Yeoh, Meng’er Zhang, Fala Chen, Florian Munteanu and Ronny Chieng. The movie follows the title character who must confront the past he thought he left behind when he is drawn into the web of the mysterious Ten Rings organization. Cretton also co-wrote the screenplay with David Callaham (Wonder Woman 1984, The Expendables) and Andrew Lanham (The Shack). Kevin Feige (Avengers, Black Panther, Iron Man) and Jonathan Schwartz are producing the project. West (Grandma, Band of Robbers, Youth in Oregon) has previously collaborated with Cretton on the director’s previous four features, I Am Not a Hipster, Short Term 12, The Glass Castle and Just Mercy. The composer’s score has been recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is set to be released in theaters nationwide on September 3, 2021 by Walt Disney Pictures.
