Alexandre Desplat Replaces Clint Mansell On ‘The Imitation Game’

If might not seem like it at the moment, but this fall, you can probably bet on "The Imitation Game" getting a massive push from The Weinstein Company. Why? Well, when they picked up the movie earlier this year, they paid a staggering $7 million dollars for it. Clearly, they think the Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley starring drama can and will go very far this awards season, and perhaps that means making sure every single element is up to their exacting standards.

If might not seem like it at the moment, but this fall, you can probably bet on "The Imitation Game" getting a massive push from The Weinstein Company. Why? Well, when they picked up the movie earlier this year, they paid a staggering $7 million dollars for it. Clearly, they think the Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley starring drama can and will go very far this awards season, and perhaps that means making sure every single element is up to their exacting standards.

Film Music Reporter reveals that though Clint Mansell was first signed on to score the picture, he's now been replaced by the very busy Alexandre Desplat, who this year alone has dropped scores for "The Monuments Men," "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and "Godzilla" and still has Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken" on deck. So why the switchout? No word yet, Mansell doesn't seem overly busy at the moment, but perhaps director Morten Tyldum is looking for a different vibe for his picture. Either way, both Mansell and Desplat are some of the best in the game, and while losing one is a bummer, gaining the other ain't so bad.

Meanwhile, Variety reports that pop star Patrick Wolf will score the developing Noel Coward biopic starring Chris Colfer. “I am so thrilled for my first film soundtrack composition to be about Noel Coward’s early life. We both grew up in the same parts of South West London, and began our journeys onto the stage and into writing at the same precocious age,” Wolf said. “The script, director, Noel Coward Estate and the cast attached combined are already in perfect synergy to make this something magical.” Production on the movie begins later this summer.
