Thomas Newman Will Score “The Debt”

By • June 1, 2009

British director John Madden’s upcoming film, The Debt, will get an original score by Thomas Newman. The dark drama, which stars Sam Worthington, Helen Mirren and Tom Wilkinson, tells the story about a Nazi war criminal who is pursued by a group of agents. Just like another film Newman has been in involved in recently, Brothers, The Debt is a US remake of an award-winning foreign film. Brothers, remade by Jim Sheridan, was originally a Danish film by Susanne Bier, and The Debt a film from Israel directed by Assaf Bernstein in 2007. Miramax should release The Debt some time next year. Thomas Newman is also doing the music for Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang.
