Alita: Battle Angel has assembled a strong cast, is co-written by James Cameron (Who has developed the film as a passion project for years), and has grindhouse-style director Robert Rodriguez at the helm. Now, it’s planning to add a composer with one heck of a recent resume.
It’s been announced that Antonius Tom Holkenborg, known by his stage name as Junkie XL, will compose the score for the film. In the last several years, Junkie XL has composed the scores for Mad Max: Fury Road, Deadpool, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Holkenborg announced this himself with a Twitter post that featured a new poster for the film. Check it out below:
With those films in mind, Junkie XL is no doubt up to the task of developing a memorable score for the post-apocalyptic science fiction which is set to hit theaters February 14, 2019.
Alita: Battle Angel stars Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, and Keean Johnson.
