'Suicide Squad' Score Composer News: David Ayer Teams with Oscar Winner Steven Price Again
Suicide Squad is arguably one of the most anticipated movies of 2016, especially after the premiere of the film's brand new extended trailer earlier this week got us all excited for its August release date. Just to add some icing to the comic book film adaption, director David Ayer decided to team up with composer Steven Price again (he also scored Ayer's Fury), hiring the Academy Award winning musician for the soundtrack score. Price won his first and only Oscar (so far) for the score to Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity.
While he's certainly known for his work on the blockbusters named above, Price's earlier compositions on Attack the Block and The World's End are also worth revisiting. Considering he's worked with Ayer before on Fury is also a great factor to his joining Suicide Squad.
Music Times actually had the honor of speaking with Price in an exclusive interview, in which the composer opened up about working with Ayer on Fury, getting started in the business and sharing advice for those interested in a similar career. You can check out this exclusive interview right here!
Though his music isn't featured in this new Suicide Squad trailer, Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" is, so check it out right now:
Here is the official synopsis of Suicide Squad (via Slash Film):
It feels good to be bad... Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government's disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren't picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it's every man for himself?
