Hanan Townshend has been selected to score Terrence Malick’s latest film To The Wonder.
New Zealand-born Townshend, who contributed a few pieces of music to Malick’s The Tree of Life, is relatively unknown in the world of composing, having only scored one other feature film in the past, Patrick Gillies’ The Holy Roller.
Starring Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Olga Kurylenko, Michael Sheen, Javier Bardem and Rachel Weisz, To The Wonder centers on a man who reconnects with a woman from his hometown after his marriage falls apart.
To The Wonder will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in early September, and is likely to propel Townshend’s talents – or lack of them – into the ears of the masses.
A UK release date has yet to be confirmed by the distributor, but we’ll be sure to let you know when it’s been set.
