Mike McCready Works on "Horrible Bosses" Score

It looks like Mike is continuing to expand his scoring work for TV and movies.
The upcoming comedy “Horrible Bosses” has a pretty outrageous premise—three dudes decide to help each other kill their bosses. So appropriately, the soundtrack is going to be just as…eclectic.

Film Music Reporter reveals that composer Christopher Lennertz (”Marmaduke,” “Alvin & The Chipmunks,” “Supernatural”) has enlisted some pretty interesting talent to help score the film. Frequent Beastie Boys collaborator Money Mark (keyboards), Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready and session/touring musicians Dave Levita (Eminem, guitar), Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction, bass), Stefan Lessard (Dave Matthews Band, bass), Victor Indrizzo (Beck, drums) and DJ Cheapshot (Linkin Park, turntables) have all combined forces for the score of the film. Let’s hope it not as spazzy as that sounds. But seriously, we doubt they’re all together at once and it’s likely different combos are pairing up for various tunes. It’s a pretty interesting approach—certainly one that isn’t done very often—so we’ll be curious to see how it all turns.
