Justin Timberlake to Compose First Film Score For Jessica Biel’s ‘Deep Blue Sea’
A lot of deals are being made all around the Cannes Film Festival, but the one that’s caught the most attention today involves Jessica Biel, Chloë Grace Moretz and Justin Timberlake. We’re referring to ‘The Devil in the Deep Blue Sea,’ a new drama from AngelWorld Entertainment that may catch people’s attention for the music more than anything else.
The Hollywood Reporter states that Jessica Biel and Chloë Grace Moretz join Jeffrey Dean Morganin the film that follows Henry (Dean Morgan), a grieving widower who recently lost his wife (Biel) in a tragic car accident, as he finds refuge by helping a wisecracking young girl (Moritz) fulfill her dream of building a raft and sailing across the Atlantic Ocean.
But the most interesting news about ‘The Devil in the Deep Blue Sea’ is not the cast or the director, but the music supervisor. After a few years’ hiatus from the music portion of the entertainment industry, Justin Timberlake is looking to not only serve on the project as music supervisor but will be composing the movie’s soundtrack. Since the plot for ‘Deep Blue Sea’ comes off as more sentimental and dramatic, it’ll be interesting to see how that translates into Timberlake’s music. Surely he loves this challenge or else he wouldn’t have signed up in the first place.
‘The Devil in the Deep Blue Sea,’ set to be directed by Bill Purple, will begin shooting this fall in New Orleans.
