Academy Award Winner Vangelis To Compose Score For Oliver Stone's Untitled Alexander The Great Project
Academy Award winning composer Vangelis will write the musical score for Oliver Stone's UNTITLED ALEXANDER THE GREAT PROJECT which is currently shooting at Pinewood Studios in London. Vangelis' score will mark the fist time the Greek composer has worked with multiple Academy Award winner Oliver Stone. The soundtrack will be released on Sony Classical.
Vangelis, best known for his score for Hugh Hudson's CHARIOTS OF FIRE , has also composed the memorable scores of numerous motion pictures including Ridley Scott's BLADE RUNNER and 1492: CONQUEST OF PARADISE, Costa-Gavras' MISSING, Roman Polanski's BITTER MOON and Roger Donaldson's THE BOUNTY . In addition to his Academy Award for CHARIOTS OF FIRE Vangelis has also been nominated for 2 Golden Globe awards and 3 BAFTA awards for his motion picture scores.
"I've always admired Oliver's films. And, of course, Alexander the Great is a story that's a natural part of my heritage. So, to be composing for this film with Oliver Stone directing makes it an especially exciting experience for me," said Vangelis.
THE UNTITLED ALEXANDER THE GREAT PROJECT is an Intermedia/IMF production. The film is written and directed by 3-time Academy Award-winner Oliver Stone and stars Colin Farrell in the title role, leading an international cast including Academy Award-winning actress Angelina Jolie, Academy Award-winning actor Anthony Hopkins, Val Kilmer, Jared Leto, Rosario Dawson and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. The film is being produced by Thomas Schuehly, Moritz Borman, Jon Kilik and Iain Smith.
