The name might not be familiar, but you've definitely heard his work. Michael Andrews has been tapped to compose the score for the upcoming Judd Apatow-produced, Paul Feig-directed comedy, "Bridesmaids." While he may not be as instantly recognized as Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer or James Newton Howard (yet) Andrews has composed for a number of notable films including "Donnie Darko," "Me And You And Everyone We Know," "Cyrus," and "Funny People." He most certainly got to know both Apatow and Feig back-in-the-day when he lent his skills to both "Undeclared" and "Freaks & Geeks."

The name might not be familiar, but you've definitely heard his work. Michael Andrews has been tapped to compose the score for the upcoming Judd Apatow-produced, Paul Feig-directed comedy, "Bridesmaids." While he may not be as instantly recognized as Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer or James Newton Howard (yet) Andrews has composed for a number of notable films including "Donnie Darko," "Me And You And Everyone We Know," "Cyrus," and "Funny People." He most certainly got to know both Apatow and Feig back-in-the-day when he lent his skills to both "Undeclared" and "Freaks & Geeks."

A comedy that we're greatly anticipating, "Bridesmaids" boasts a massive ensemble cast led by Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm, Oscar winner Dianne Wiest, Matthew Lucas (U.K. hit comedy show "Little Britain"), Chris O'Dowd ("The I.T. Crowd," "Gulliver's Travels"), Ellie Kemper (Erin on "The Office"), Melissa McCarthy ("Gilmore Girls"), and Wendy McLendon-Covey ("Reno:911").

The film centers on Annie (Wiig), a simple and single 30-something Midwestern girl (with a poor dating track record) who is asked to be her best friend Lillian's (Rudolph) maid of honor. However, having never done the job, she struggles to please the snobby, rich bridesmaids at every pre-wedding event. One of Lillian's best friends is essentially the bridesmaid from hell (Byrne) — who attempts to take over the maid of honor duties from the inexperienced Annie. There's an awkward policeman in the film who vies for Wiig's affections (eventually) and we think it's a pretty good guess that role probably belongs to Hamm.

The film is currently in post-production and will hit theaters next spring on May 12, 2011.
