2011 seemed to be a banner year for electro-driven scores, with folks like Trent Reznor ("The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo"), Cliff Martinez ("Drive" and "Contagion"), Basement Jaxx ("Attack The Block") and Mr. Oizo ("Rubber") all delivering solid work. But perhaps the most memorable of them all was The Chemical Brothers score for Joe Wright's assassin tale "Hanna." Well, the good news is the duo are back to deliver some serious beats for another promising project.

The Chemical Brothers Louis Leterrier

2011 seemed to be a banner year for electro-driven scores, with folks like Trent Reznor ("The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo"), Cliff Martinez ("Drive" and "Contagion"), Basement Jaxx ("Attack The Block") and Mr. Oizo ("Rubber") all delivering solid work. But perhaps the most memorable of them all was The Chemical Brothers score for Joe Wright's assassin tale "Hanna." Well, the good news is the duo are back to deliver some serious beats for another promising project.

Sources close to the film have confirmed with The Playlist that The Chemical Brothers will score Louis Leterrier's upcoming high concept heist picture, "Now You See Me." The film, which is currently in front of cameras, features a promising ensemble -- Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Isla Fisher, Melanie Laurent, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Common -- in the story about an FBI squad caught up in a game of cat-and-mouse against a team of the world’s greatest illusionists, who pull off a series of daring bank heists during their performances and shower the profits onto their audiences.

Leterrier has always displayed a keen ear toward the music on his films, working previously with Massive Attack on "Danny The Dog" (RZA did the music for the U.S. version, "Unleashed"). And at one time, Matt Bellamy from Muse was lined up to do some work on "Clash Of The Titans," though scheduling prevented him for working on the film (Neil Davidge from Massive Attack stepped in to write some addtional music for the movie). But The Chemical Brothers pairing up with Leterrier marks one of his most interesting collaborations yet and we can't wait to hear the results.

"Now You See Me" will hit theaters on January 18, 2013.
