Jon Brion To Score Vince Vaughn Comedy 'Delivery Man'

The Playlist By Charlie Schmidlin | The Playlist June 17, 2013 at 10:20AM

Among the many talents of composer Jon Brion, besides mounting unique live shows and producing the records of music's top performers, is his ability to switch between scoring small-scale and mainstream films with ease. His work with Charlie Kaufman and Paul Thomas Anderson perhaps allows him a bit more room to breathe, but he's just as capable of handling broad comedies like “The Break-Up” and “The Other Guys,” and his newest project finds him gaining more experience in the latter.

Delivery Man Jon Brion

Among the many talents of composer Jon Brion, besides mounting unique live shows and producing the records of music's top performers, is his ability to switch between scoring small-scale and mainstream films with ease. His work with Charlie Kaufman and Paul Thomas Anderson perhaps allows him a bit more room to breathe, but he's just as capable of handling broad comedies like “The Break-Up” and “The Other Guys,” and his newest project finds him gaining more experience in the latter.

On the heels of its brief teaser trailer last month, the Vince Vaughn comedy “Delivery Man” has just grown more interesting with the news that Brion is set to provide his abilities for the score. A remake of the 2011 French-Canadian hit, “Starbuck,” the Ken Scott-directed film follows a man who discovers through a sperm bank mix-up that he's fathered over 500 children, and with the tempered-but-positive box office for Vaughn's recent “The Internship,” Dreamworks and Disney are naturally looking for a repeat performance.

Brion's name is certainly a good start in drumming up interest, but we'll see how the film, which also co-stars Cobie Smulders and Chris Pratt, manages when it's released November 22nd. [Film Music Reporter]
