Cliff Martinez is set to score James Mangold‘s The Wolverine 3. The film is now in-production and is said to be Hugh Jackman‘s last turn as perhaps his most iconic character.
Martinez last scored The Neon Demon, Nicholas Winding Refn’s new film which opens in UK cinemas this weekend. His previous work includes the scores for sex, lies and videotape, Drive, Only God Forgives, Contagion, Solaris and Traffic, and also Arbitrage, The Lincoln Lawyer and Spring Breakers.
The Wolverine 3, or whatever the filmmakers decide to call it, will be his first comic-book/ superhero movie.
Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, and Eriq La Salle are also set to star in the sequel, which will be released in 2017.
Here’s a sample of Martinez’s work from the outstanding Drive– it’s quite something.
