Queen Of The Night Ryan Reynolds
Mychael Danna, who has scored all of Canadian director Atom Egoyan's features for the last twenty years (including the as-yet-unreleased "Devil's Knot," starring Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon), will, unsurprisingly, contribute music to Egoyan's new film, "Queen of the Night." The thriller, starring Ryan Reynolds (mercifully away from any kind of comic book adaptation), Bruce Greenwood, Scott Speedman and Rosario Dawson, is about the search for a missing child and, like every other movie in the known universe, will be premiering at this fall's Toronto International Film Festival. Read on for more about new scores from Air and soundtrack details for Claire Denis' controversial "Bastards."
