Once director David Ayer and film composer Steven Price figured out where the music was going to be and what it was going to do in Suicide Squad, Price could bring his orchestra into the studio for a scoring session.
As you can see in the behind-the-scenes below, the scoring sessions have begun! Now the musicians can watch sequences from the film — in this case, a scene with Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) — as they perform the score, allowing the composer and the director to check how the music sits on any given scene.
Price previously worked with Ayer, composing his 2014 World War II film, Fury. His other credits include Gravity, The World's End, and Attack the Block.
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Written and directed by Ayer based on the characters from DC Comics, the film also stars Jai Courtney (“Insurgent”), Jay Hernandez (“Takers”), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (“Thor: The Dark World”), Ike Barinholtz (“Neighbors”), Scott Eastwood (“Fury”), Cara Delevingne (“Paper Towns”), Adam Beach (“Cowboys & Aliens”), and Karen Fukuhara in her feature film debut. It is produced by Charles Roven and Richard Suckle, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Colin Wilson and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
Suicide Squad opens worldwide in 3D, and in 2D, and in select IMAX 3D theaters beginning August 5, 2016.
