Shore’s ‘Edge of Darkness’ CD announced
Howard Shore’s original score from the upcoming Mel Gibson action thriller, Edge of Darkness, will be released on CD by Watertower Music on January 26, 2010, co-inciding with the film’s premiere on January 29. Watertower Music is Warner Bros’ new soundtrack brand, formerly known as New Line Records. As MovieScore Magazine previously reported, Shore replaced John Corigliano as the composer on the film, presumably as a result of the film undergoing a major revision (according to the Internet Movie Database, scenes were still being re-shot in October). Martin Campbell is the director on the film, which tells the story about a homicide detective who uncovers a huge corporate and governmental conspiration when he investigates the death of his own daughter. Whether or not John Corialiano’s rejected score will be released on CD or not remains to be seen.
