I read a news report that Atticus has signed on to do the music for Keanu Reeves new movie 47 Ronin, a 3-D samaurai tale.
I wasnt sure if anyone else has heard about this.

Yeah I heard about this (obviously #stalker), but so far only Film Music Reporter is source - they're usually reputable, but they have no source.

Buuut I hope he is, and this reminds me to bump a post I'd drafted!



Dias de Gracia's official twitter just mentioned it, so I'm taking it as fact. Cheers princessO

It sounds very interesting. I do like Keanu Reeves also, so I'm looking forward to hearing more about Atticus' involvement in the movie.
I was mostly intersested at this point if it was speculation or something legit.

Thanks Sheepdean.. I hear you on the atticus stalkerness... haha

Considering even imdb are reporting it, I'm taking it as legit - if not, egg on my face!

Keanu seems to be really improving with age, although I do get slightly confused when films about samurai cast white people :P. The score itself will probably be out early November, assuming it follows suit of normal score releases.

I was a fan of Keanu since "River's edge" which is a movie I absolutely still love.
Im hoping for something large and Epic for this soundtrack...

I REALLY hope he gets in on the orchestra again, Book of Eli's orchestra brought out so much depth

Your echoing my thoughts. I was thinking epic and large with orchestration.
Especially seeing that the movie will be seeing in 3-D, I think that it would add that extra dimention to the movie.
Something to get excited about and wait another 7 months or so for.

No doubt it won't come out this side of the pond until 2013, 3D films get the worst delays :(
I can't find an official site for it yet though, so no way to easily track score info other than the usual scouring google

technically, Keanu is hawaiian, so he's of japanese descent...but, yeah, he looks pretty white.

No. He's descended from Chinese.

No. He's descended from Chinese.

Reeves was born in Beirut (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beirut), Lebanon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lebanon), the son of Patricia Bond (née Taylor), a costume designer/performer, and Samuel Nowlin Reeves, Jr., a geologist. His mother was English (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_people) and his father was a Hawaiian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawaii)-born American (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States) of English (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_American), Irish (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_American), Portuguese (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portuguese_American), Hawaiian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Native_Hawaiians), and Chinese (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_American) descent.[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keanu_reeves#cite_note-1)[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keanu_reeves#cite_note-reulu-2)[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keanu_reeves#cite_note-3)

from wikipedia. Hawaiian descent = Japanese descent. so he has both in his blood.

^^I'm Japanese. I can't understand "Hawaiian=Japanese" theory.

No need the Keanu wiki quote.
As a big fan of him since MOPI and having hundreds of his interview DVDs which I have traded with fans all over the world, I have often heard of him mentioning his Chinese descent but never about Japanese one.

The only official site for the film atm, although www.47roninmovie.com redirects to Universal Pictures' site, so that'll have stuff on it too.

Film release pushed back to Feb. 8th 2013

Guess we will have a while to wait on this new music... :(

sheepdean

So, score is likely to be January I guess, assuming they follow normal release patterns

princessomega

Thats pretty much what I am assuming also, and here I was getting excited at the prospect of more music from Atticus besides the HTDA album.
I guess it just makes 2013 more exciting.:p

Maybe Atticus will score some more Milk adverts (http://creativity-online.com/work/california-milk-processor-board-trail-runner/10209) in the meantime

That ad has to be the creepiest ad for milk I have ever seen, yet the music was very good. :o

I was very much impressed by his his score of Book of Eli .So I am really looking forward for 47 Ronin too.

Apparently showings of Sadako 3D in Japan are accompanied with the first trailer for the film, not clear if the music is original or not though.

Fucking fuck. Besides the score i'm also sorta starting to look forward to the movie so I take this as very sour news.

Rough news. I'm gonna play the optimist and say the pushed back release means Atticus can now tour comfortably with How To Destroy Angels.

On the plus side, the more it costs, the better chance the studio will do a nice deluxe package for the soundtrack, to balance out SOME costs :P

UGh..
I am actually really looking forward to not only Atticus' score for this movie, but also for the movie itself.
The story itself is quite interesting and I think it would make a great film if carried out well. But to need to make half a billion in order to make a profit seems a bit much.
On a Deluxe package for the soundtrack, that I am totally stoked for.
I feel like there is a drought in some good tunage out there and I am really grasping for some new Ross~!!!

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Oh well, I'm still interested in the movie, and it's not like Atticus won't be making music in some other fashion. He's still scoring 'Broken City', right?

sheepdean

I hope so, as it's out in a month and a bit :P

I hope this is because HTDA touring might cause issues, but it's probably something more mundane.

princessomega

ugh.
What a total bummer.
This movie actually sounded quite interesting to me as a whole, story and music.
Well at least we have HTDA to get our fill of Atticus.
