A lot of interesting news has come out of this year’s New York Comic-Con. Last week, we learned about Warner Bros/DC Entertainment’s plans for their upcoming superhero films. Unfortunately, the Justice League’s future isn’t looking too bright. But on a positive note, director Joe Wright held a panel for his new teen assassin flick Hanna, where it was revealed that the film will have a kick-ass score composed by none other than The Chemical Brothers.
According to Firstshowing, the moderator at the panel introduced some clips from Hanna, and mentioned that “there will be Chemical Brothers music behind it.” The site’s very own Alex Billington was in attendance and decided to ask the director himself if he could expand on that statement. Wright said, “The Chemical Brothers will be scoring the entire movie to provide a more “modern beat” instead of the classical scores of his previous films.” Nice!
Hanna centers on a 14-year-old Eastern European girl (Saoirse Ronan) who has been raised by her father to be a cold-blooded killing machine. She connects with a French family, forms a friendship with their daughter and goes through the pangs of adolescence. When the girl is dragged back to her father’s world and discovers that she was bred as a killing machine in a CIA prison camp, she must fight her way to a free life.
What do you think of the Chemical Brothers scoring Hanna?
