One of the most intriguing projects of the year has to be the Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy-anchored two-parter “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: His/Hers.” Although details are relatively scarce on the double feature, we at least now know who will be scoring the dissolution of Chastain and McAvoy’s marriage.
Film Music Reporter is reporting that Son Lux, aka Ryan Lott, has been tapped to score both parts of Ned Benson’s feature-length directorial debut. Son Lux has released two albums on his own -- falling somewhere in between the categories of post-rock and hip-hop, for lack of a better description. He collaborated with Serengeti and Sufjan Stevens in S / S / S (the group released their first EP last year) and also worked with Nathan Johnson on the orchestrations and instrument designs for the “Looper” score. We’re guessing his score for 'Eleanor Rigby' will probably be in a similar, electronics-heavy vein.
We're still waiting on a trailer and a firm release date for “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: His” and the second part “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Hers.” But our eyes will be firmly on the latter part of the festival season where it is expected to make an appearance.
