Hildur Guðnadóttir (Academy Award winner for Joker and Emmy Award winner for Chernobyl) confirmed at today’s first panel at Variety’s Music for Screens Summit that she will be scoring director David O. Russell’s next, currently untitled film which had early on gone by the name Amsterdam.
The film is written and directed by the Oscar-nominated O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle) and stars Oscar winner Christian Bale, Oscar nominee Margot Robbie and John David Washington (who replaced Michael B. Jordan). The plot details are currently under wraps. Matthew Budman (Detroit, Spree) is producing and will be distributed via New Regency’s deal with 20th Century Studios. Three-time Academy Award winner Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki is the film’s director of photography of the project, and is Guðnadóttir’s first film since scoring the Academy Award-winning for Todd Phillips’ Joker.
The movie is tentatively set to start shooting in early 2021 with a release in late 2021 possible.
