Southpaw, the upcoming boxing film starring Jake Gyllenhaal, marks one of the last films to feature a score composed by the late James Horner.
Horner died unexpectedly last month in a plane crash. Shortly after Horner’s death, Southpaw director Antoine Fuqua said of the composer, “He was a legend, an artist and a great friend” In addition to Southpaw, Horner also did the music for Chilean miner drama, The 33, set to hit theaters in November.
But Fuqua discovered a secret project Horner had worked on a couple days ago when the composer’s team brought them all the music from Magnificent Seven. Fuqua said that Horner wrote it for him based on the script.
