Chris Bacon To Score Source Code

Chris Bacon

As reported last night, Clint Mansell will no longer be scoring Source Code due to scheduling conflicts. Replacing Clint will be new, up and coming composer Chris Bacon

Chris comes highly recommended as confirmed by Duncan’s tweet in response to a question from @TwinMadeFilms on Twitter:

“very talented young guy called Chris Bacon, who was recommended by my editor, the legendary Paul Hirsch.”

Sad to see Clint won’t be working on Source Code now, after a stunning first collaboration with Duncan on MOON, but with such a glowing recommendation, and trust in Duncan’s descision to go with Chris, I’m confident we’re on track for something special.

As you will see from Chris’s IMDB entry, he has a wealth of experience working on some very high profile projects such as King Kong (2005), Blood Diamond (2006), I Am Legend (2007) and The Dark Knight (2008) and as main composer of 10 films including the Disney documentary Waking Sleeping Beauty (2009), Alpha and Omega (2010) and Gnomeo and Juliet (2011)

Good luck with the gig, Chris! 🙂
