ALEXANDRE DESPLAT - the tree of life

Excellent news for the fans of the French film composer, Alexandre Desplat, as he's been assigned to score Terrence Malick's much-awaited new big feature for 2009, The Tree of Life.

Below there's a quote from the website about the assignment:

"Alexandre Desplat, whose score for David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is one of this year's most anticipated and already considered a strong contender in the Oscar race, is doing the music for famous auteur Terrence Malick's new film, The Tree of Life, which incidentally also stars Brad Pitt (he plays the title character in Fincher's film). Desplat's involvement in The Tree of Life has been confirmed to Upcoming Film Scores by one of the film's producers. Malick is known for his strong visual sense and the pacing of his films often call for sustained and ambient musical scores. The story of the film, which also stars Sean Penn, has been closely guarded but it is said to focus on the evolution of an eleven-year old boy. Picked up for distribution by Summit Entertainment, it is slated for release in fall/winter of 2009."
