THE WRESTLER: New audio interview: CLINT MANSELL On the Score
Here's an interesting new audio interview with composer CLINT MANSELL at On the Score over at www.filmmusicmag.com, as director Darren Aronofsky's musical collaborator talks about their innovative work on PI, REQUIEM FOR A DREAM, THE FOUNTAIN and their latest, acclaimed film THE WRESTLER.
The Wrestler is an upcoming film directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Mickey Rourke, Ernest Miller, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood. Production began in January 2008. It will be released in a limited capacity on December 17, 2008 and it's about Randy "Ram" Robinson (Mickey Rourke), a professional wrestler from the 1980s who is forced to retire after a heart attack threatens to kill him the next time he wrestles. He takes a job at a deli and attempts to form a relationship with a stripper and does his best to reconcile with his estranged daughter.
However, he is drawn to the prospect of a rematch with his old wrestling nemesis the Ayatollah, even though the fight may cost him his life. (Wikipedia)
