Academy and Grammy Award-winners Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Gone Girl) will compose the Patriots Day score, it was announced by director Peter Berg today.
In the aftermath of an unspeakable act of terror, Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders (Mark Wahlberg) joins courageous survivors, first responders and investigators in a race against the clock to hunt down the bombers before they strike again. Weaving together the stories of Special Agent Richard DesLauriers (Kevin Bacon), Police Commissioner Ed Davis (John Goodman), Sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese (J.K. Simmons) and nurse Carol Saunders (Michelle Monaghan) this visceral and unflinching chronicle captures the suspense of the most sophisticated manhunt in law enforcement history and the strength of the people of Boston.
The film co-stars Melissa Benoist, Michael Beach, Jimmy O. Yang, Vincent Curatola, Alex Wolff, James Colby, Themo Melikidze, Rachel Brosnahan and Christopher O’Shea.
Directed by Peter Berg (Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon), Patriots Day was written by Berg and Matt Cook (Triple 9), Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson (The Fighter). Scott Stuber, Wahlberg, Hutch Parker, Dylan Clark, Stephen Levinson, Dorothy Aufiero and Michael Radutzky are producing.
Patriots Day is being co-financed by CBS Films and Lionsgate, with the former handling production and marketing and the latter handling distribution.
Patriots Day will open in New York, Los Angeles and Boston on December 21, 2016 and will then expand nationwide on January 13, 2017.
