Composer John Debney To Score Predators


Composer John Debney will be composing an original score for the Robert Rodriguez-produced, Nimrod Antal-directed sequel/reboot Predators. Not a hugely surprising choice as Debney has worked with Rodriguez many times in the past, including Sin City, The Adventures of Shark-Boy and Lava-Girl, and the Spy Kids films.

He composed additional music for the Spider-Man sequels, and is currently working on Iron Man 2.
