Johnny Marr to write film music
The Smiths' former electric guitar player is to branch out by composing the score for an upcoming movie.
Johnny Marr, who made his name playing a Rickenbacker on hits such as This Charming Man and Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now, is writing the music for The Big Bang.
The movie, which stars Antonio Banderas and Snoop Dogg, is a detective film set in Los Angeles and is Marr's first excursion into film scores.
Speaking to MovieScore Magazine, producer Reece Pearson enthused about his participation in the project.
"He was just ranked the number one greatest guitarist of all time by Virgin Media," he noted.
Although The Big Bang marks the first time that Marr has composed music for the big screen, he has written for television before.
It recently emerged that he is working with former Stones Roses frontman Ian Brown on the soundtrack to a drama series that is being written by a mutual friend.Posted on 4 Dec 2009 12:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
