Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard and Beastie Boys' Ad-Rock Scoring Films Set to Premiere at Sundance
Published Jan 06, 2014Belle and Sebastian frontman Stuart Murdoch's God Help the Girl film will premiere this month at the Sundance Film Festival, but that's not the only new movie that fans will want to keep an eye out for. Sundance will also see the premiere of flicks featuring scores by Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard and Beastie Boys' Ad-Rock (a.k.a. Adam Horovitz).
As The Playlist reports, Gibbard is listed as the music composer for Laggies, a drama directed by Lynn Shelton (Touchy Feely, Your Sister's Sister) and written by Andrea Seigel. It stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Keira Knightley and Sam Rockwell, and is about a woman whose boyfriend proposes to her, prompting her to ditch her professional-development retreat and hide at a friend's house.
Laggies will be screened several times as part of the festival, first on January 17.
Ad-Rock, on the other hand, has written the music for a documentary called No No: A Dockumentary. It's a documentary about famed baseball pitcher Dock Ellis, who played in the '60s and '70s and famously threw a no-hitter while allegedly on LSD.
Watch a trailer for No No: A Dockumentary below. It will premiere on January 20, and this will be followed by several screenings at the festival.
Speaking of Ad-Rock, he was recently rumoured to be acting in an upcoming Ben Stiller movie.
