The Gorfaine Schwartz Agency, which represents James Horner officialy confirmed that the composer was engaged on Southpaw, the next film by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Equalizer)
James Horner had discussed this project with us in our interview (
Conversation with James Horner) published in early December:
“I’m starting another film in a world I know nothing about. About a boxer, an American boxer. This is a story of a boxer who is right at the top of his career, then he loses everything, including his daughter. Then he has to get his daughter back, and make his way back… and it’s just a movie I’ve never done before. I thought it would be really challenging again. It’ll be really edgy, but it will be very simple. No big orchestras.”
The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams, Naomie Harris, Forest Whitaker, Victor Ortiz, Tyrese Gibson and Miguel Gomez. No release date has yet been announced.
