Atticus Ross in talks to score Brian Wilson biopic

Atticus Ross

How To Destroy Angels’ Atticus Ross, it seems, is “in talks” to compose the score to a new film about Brian Wilson.

A somewhat speculative article in the Hollywood Reporter shares various tbc info on ‘Love & Mercy’, filmmaker Bill Pohlad’s “unconventional” take on Wilson’s life and times. It says the biopic will star ‘There Will Be Blood’ star Paul Dano as a young Wilson, with a still uncast actor set to play the aging Beach Boy in his fraught later years.

Ross, meanwhile, who won as Oscar for his and HTDA collaborator Trent Reznor’s soundtrack to ‘The Social Network’, will manage “sound design” on the new film, as will apparently feature Wilson’s original music.
