Chemical Brothers Score Hanna
Saoirse gonna work it out

Providing further proof that Joe Wright's latest effort will completely new territory for him, First Showing have the scoop from the New York Comic Con that big beat electroheads The Chemical Brothers will be providing the music for Hanna.

Wright, who's hit rather more classical notes in the past with Atonement and Pride and Prejudice, confirmed that Hanna would be moving to "a more modern beat", and that the "brothers" Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons were the natural choice. Wright has known them since the early 90s, when he used to help them with lighting and projection at raves. Ahh, them was the days.

Twenty years into their career, The Chemical Brothers still play to audiences of thousands, but this will be the first time they've written music specifically for a movie. Their involvement with Hanna continues a recent trend of big names moonlighting on film scores, following Trent Reznor's work on The Social Network and Daft Punk's involvement with Tron: Legacy.

Hanna stars Saoirse Ronan as the titular assassin, bred for war in a CIA prison camp, trained for destruction by her father Eric Bana and hiding out in France until the action kicks off. We're told it's a bit Nikita, a bit Bourne, a bit Alias and a bit Kick-Ass. Hopefully it's a bit something of its own too, and with Wright at the helm, we've every confidence. It's out in the UK on April 8 next year.

RE: Uhm, Fight Club anybody?
That was the Dust Brothers. The American Dust Brothers with EZ Mike - not the Chemical Brothers before they changed their name. More
