Sean Penn, Gangster Squad

After a release date delay and some reshoots, "Gangster Squad" is back on the case next month and in addition to the old-timey hats, clothes, cars and guns, there's going to be some old-timey music too.

The soundtrack details for the film have been revealed, and no surprise, it's a lot of pop, swing and standards from the era. And so we get tunes from big names and legends like Johnny Mercer, Hoagy Carmichael and Peggy Lee, and contributions from lesser-known names like Pee Wee King. But perhaps most intriguing of all is that the very modern St. Vincent has delivered her take on the standard "Early Autumn," that has previously been performed by folks like Woody Herman (who co-wrote it), Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme and more.

The soundtrack will land on January 8th with the movie in theaters on January 11th. Full tracklist below. [Film Music Reporter]
