Isaac Brock, Modest Mouse front man and songwriter, will compose the score for the upcoming feature film Queens of Country.
Ryan Page and Christopher Pomerenke, the writing and directing team behind the film, are best known for their music documentaries including Blood Into Wine, The Heart Is A Drum Machine and Moog. The pair have placed an equal amount of importance on the scores to their films with both The Flaming Lips’ Steven Drozd (The Heart Is A Drum Machine) and Maynard James Keenan’s Puscifer (Blood Into Wine) having contributed to their films.
Queens of Country stars Lizzy Caplan (Party Down, Mean Girls) and Ron Livingston (Band of Brothers, Office Space) with supporting actors Joe Lo Truglio (Superbad, Pineapple Express) and Maynard James Keenan (Tool, Puscifer, A Perfect Circle). The film centers on Caplan’s character Jolene and a lost iPod, which the obsessed country music fan is convinced belongs to her soul mate. Jolene quickly finds herself in a hilarious adventure of mistaken identities, line dancing competitions, time machines and doppelgangers.
Post-production recently wrapped on the film with an eye towards a 2012 release for both the film and score.
