Filmmaker Edgar Wright took to his twitter account to congratulate composer Steve Price on his BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Best Music Award win for the “Gravity” film score. He also wants fans to know that Price will be composing the music for Marvel’s “Ant-Man.” Here is Wright’s tweet.
Huge congrats to @SteveBPrice for his Bafta Award for the ‘Gravity’ score. I guess I should drop the news that he is scoring ‘Ant-Man’.
Price and Wright have history. Price composed the score for Wright’s 2013 action/sci-fi/comedy “The World’s End.” He also composed additional music for “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.” The composer is currently working on the World War II drama “Fury.” “Ant-Man” is on the ‘to do’ list, but Marvel has not confirmed a start date for their miniscule superhero.
Here is the storyline for the film.
Biochemist Dr. Henry “Hank” Pym (Michael Douglas) uses his latest discovery, a group of subatomic particles (Pym Particles,) to create a size-altering formula. Armed with a helmet that can control ants, Pym is able to shrink down to the size of an insect to become Ant-Man. Eventually, thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) steals Pym’s Ant-Man suit to save his daughter Cassie from a heart condition.
“Ant-Man” is slated to make its way into theaters on July 17, 2015. The film stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly (rumored) and Michael Peña (rumored.) Joe Cornish and Edgar Wright co-wrote the script based on the comic book character created by Jack Kirby, Larry Lieber and Stan Lee. Kevin Feige will produce for Marvel, while Edgar Wright (“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”) directs.
