He has also scored many other movies including all four “Scream” films, the first Resident Evil, 3:10 to Yuma, The Hurt Locker, World War Z, and the AMC series “TURN: Washington’s Spies.”

In other musical news, FMR also reports that Christophe Beck will provide the score for Marvel’s Ant-Man, which just debuted its teaser trailer last night. Beck is most well known for composing the music for Disney’s hit film Frozen though he also provided the score for all three “Hangover” movies, The Muppets, and the comic book-based Elektra, RED, and R.I.P.D. It should be noted, however, that Beck previously worked with Marvel maestro Joss Whedon on both “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and its spin-off “Angel,” for a combined 80 episodes.
