Acclaimed “Drive,” “Spring Breakers,” “Traffic” and “Only God Forgives” composer Cliff Martinez has joined the world of superheroes with Film Music Reporter today reporting that he has signed on to score James Mangold’s upcoming “Wolverine” film – the third solo and apparent final outing for Hugh Jackman as the clawed mutant.
Details on the film’s story are being kept secret, but it has been heavily rumored that the film will be a loose adaptation of the Old Man Logan storylines from the comics. Shooting is now underway in New Orleans.
Martinez takes over from Marco Beltrami who scored 2013’s “The Wolverine”. Martinez scored “The Neon Demon” currently in cinemas, is doing the score for the upcoming “War Dogs” and most recently did the scores for Cinemax’s “The Knick” and the video game “Far Cry 4”.
