Recommended Posts

Quote

Michael Giacchino (Up, Star Trek, Lost, Jurassic World, The Incredibles, Ratatouille) is teaming up with Nami Melumad (Absentia) to score the upcoming comedy An American Pickle. The film marks the feature solo directorial debut of cinematographer Brandon Trost and stars Seth Rogen, Maya Erskine and Sarah Snook. The movie revolves around an immigrant worker at a pickle factory who is accidentally preserved for a century and wakes up in modern day Brooklyn. Simon Rich (Man Seeking Woman, Miracle Workers) wrote the screenplay. Rogen is also producing the Point Grey production with Evan Goldberg (This Is the End, The Interview) and James Weaver (Neighbors, The Disaster Artist). Giacchino has previously scored the 2011 feature 50/50 for the producers. An American Pickle is expected to be released in 2020 by Sony Pictures.

Giacchino’s upcoming projects also include Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, which will premiere next month at the Toronto Film Festival before being released on October 18 by Fox Searchlight. Melumad continues to score Amazon’s Stana Katie-starring series Absentia, which will return for its third season in 2020.

He doesn't always deliver but I might put him in Top 5 best theme writer we have in Hollywood today - with Williams and JNH and I might throw in Desplat and Elfman in there too.

My parents watched the film yesterday  and although I was unable to watch it with them, I could hear snippets of the score. Some nice orchestral colors from what I heard, not as quiet and paired-down as Jojo.

It says right on the cover: Giacchino wrote the themes, Melumads wrote the score that integrates them

 

Surely Gia wrote the themes and got attached to the project as favor to James Weaver, producer of this film and 50/50, while helping out a young up and coming composer, getting many people to buy/stream the album who otherwise wouldn't have if Gia's name wasn't attached

 

Gia seems to be sliding more and more into this role, since's he's also just providing the themes for Extinct as well.

Just got done listening to the album on Spotify

 

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh it's not bad, but it's not very memorable, one of those in one ear and out the other scores.  Not very Giacchino-y, either
