It was recently reported the producer is expanding into movie scores having landed a gig on the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.
The news was leaked via Twitter during a conversation between the producer and Fantastic Four director Josh Trank. In the tweet, Trank typed, “One of my heroes, @therealelp, made a incredible instrumental piece for our end credits. I couldn’t be any more excited. #elp #fantasticfour.”
P responded, “oh shit cat out the bag!!,” and later confirmed the spot with the tweet, “yes, I scored the end credits for the new fantastic 4. thanks.”
Fantastic Four is slated for release on Aug. 7 in North America. The Fantastic Four (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) will hit stores a week later and is mostly composed by Marco Beltrami and Phillip Glass.
