Steve Mazzaro (The Boss BabyArmy of ThievesThe Rhythm Section) & Hans Zimmer (Inception, The Lion King, Dune, The Dark Knight, Gladiator) have teamed up to compose the music for the upcoming Netflix original documentary The Volcano: Rescue from Whakaari. The film is directed by Rory Kennedy (Last Days in Vietnam, Ethel) and tracks the minute-by-minute unfolding of the tragic volcanic eruption off the coast of New Zealand in 2019, when a sightseeing day-trip to a remote volcanic island left 47 tourists and guides trapped in the epicenter of a boiling pyroclastic surge of toxic dust and ash. Kennedy is also executive producing the Imagine Documentaries production with Sara Bernstein & Justin Wilkes (Julia, Rebuilding Paradise), Dallas Brennan Rexer and Mark Bailey (Downfall: The Case Against Boeing). Ron Howard who has previously collaborated with Zimmer on numerous projects (including Backdraft, The Da Vinci Code & Rush) serves as an executive producer. The Volcano: Rescue from Whakaari will be released in select theaters on December 9, 2022 before premiering on December 16 on Netflix.

Zimmer & Mazzaro have also recently been scoring the upcoming Peacock original series The Calling, which is set to debut on November 10.
