Clint Mansell Not Scoring 'Source Code', Replaced by Chris Bacon

Source Code

Back in September, it was announced/confirmed that one of our favorite composers, Clint Mansell, would be working with director Duncan Jones (Moon) again on his film Source Code with Jake Gyllenhaal. The trailer was revealed in November and everything looked good, but Badass Digest (via SlashFilm) is reporting that Mansell is off of the project due to "scheduling" conflicts, which seems a bit suspicious but we'll leave it be. Instead, the score will be composed by newcomer Chris Bacon, who's worked as an engineer/composer on many films including Waking Sleeping Beauty, Space Chimps, King Kong, Defiance, Duplicity and more.

We totally love Clint Mansell and are sad to see him leave this project. We actually had a chance to hear a bit of his work when we visited the editing room with Duncan Jones a few weeks ago, and it was quite good, but that's a story for another day. I've never heard of Chris Bacon and don't know who he is, but I trust Duncan and if he thinks this guy is a strong fit for working on Source Code, I don't think we have anything to worry about. Source Code is a sci-fi time-travel thriller from a script by Ben Ripley starring Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright. Watch the trailer here. This arrives in theaters on April 15th.

No I know, I'm just saying it seemed a bit odd, but it doesn't really matter, the movie still looks awesome and I still love Clint Mansell. 🙂
