Trent Reznor isn't the only '90s alt rock superstar in the scoring world! The legendary Mike Patton (Faith No More, Tomahawk, Mr. Bungle) has been selected by writer/director Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine) to provide the score for The Place Beyond the Pines, which stars Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendes. That's awesome and with that talent, the film should be as A-list as it stars, right? One thing is for sure: the score will rock and the fact that Patton is scoring makes us want to see it even more.
Patton is not new to scoring. He has done a series of scores over the past few years including the Italian drama A Solitude of Prime Numbers, Crank 2: High Voltage and the short film A Perfect Place.
Patton is also currently working on a new Tomahawk album with a projected late summer release date.
Does that fact that Mike Patton is scoring The Place Beyond the Pines make you want to see it even more?
