Christopher Young is a busy man

Now one of the rising composers in Hollywood, Mr. Young is back on the Lucky You project. Details from follow:

Christopher Young has been brought back to compose the original Curtis Hanson’s drama Lucky You. Young has been attached to the project before, but left scoring duties on the film a few months ago. He was then replaced by French composer Alexandre Desplat, but is now back working on the score. Desplat is no longer working on the film. Warner Bros. has refused to comment on the reasons behind this unusual chain of events, but it should be noted that Christopher Young and Curtis Hanson has worked together before on Wonder Boys. Lucky You, which is scheduled to open on September 15, stars Eric Bana, Drew Barrymore and Robert Duvall.

Christopher Young is one of the busiest composers in Hollywood right now: he just finished scoring the action film Ghost Rider, and he also has the scores for The Grudge 2, The Messengers and Spider-Man 3 on his schedule. Alexandre Desplat is scoring two films called The Painted Veil and Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium.

I'm certainly looking forward to Spidey 3 from a new composer. Elfman just didn't give the guy quite a sweeping musical backdrop, other than a few isolated cues and a few good suites.

Have an excellent day, folks!
