I never thought I’d get the chance to blend my love for Wolf Parade and movies together, but a recent bit of news has given me that wonderful opportunity. It’s been revealed that the Handsome Furs frontman, Dan Boeckner, will be mixing up some tunes for Scott Coffey‘s latest project, Adult World.
This news came from the director himself, as he tweeted (via ThePlaylist) that he is “thrilled that Dan Boeckner of Wolf Parade and Handsome Furs is scoring my movie #adultworld starting @RobersEmma & @johncusack.” Starring Roberts and Cusack, as well as American Horror Story‘s Evan Peters and Shannon Woodward.
The project follows Roberts as Amy, a college graduate who moves back in with her parents to pursue her dream of being the next poetry star. But since that doesn’t end up paying the bills, her parents force her into getting a job and she ends up at Adult World, an erotic bookstore. Peters co-stars as Manny, a love interest, and John Cusack is on board to play Amy’s mentor/idol Rat Billings.
With Wolf Parade on an indefinite hiatus (boo!!) as of now, this news has me fully on board. Although the film doesn’t sound like the most original thing to come out of Hollywood, it has some rising stars leading the way and Boeckner will definitely add something special to the soundtrack. We’re still not sure if he’ll be providing his memorable voice for the film, or if he’ll be orchestrating just a score; either way, he has my vote.
What do you think of Boeckner scoring Adult World?
As my review can attest to, I’m looking forward to not only watch John Wick again but also see how the film hits with general audiences when it arrives this weekend. The actioner stars Keanu Reeves as an ex-hitman who is crossed by the son of his old employer. When everything is taken from him, he decides to […]

Composer Nathan Johnson is a master at making off-beat and imperfect instruments sound distant yet accessible on a number of vastly different narratives (see: Brick, The Brothers Bloom, Looper). His latest work is a pair of scores for films that were both released this month, Jake Paltrow‘s neo-western Young Ones and the journalistic thriller Kill the Messenger starring Jeremy Renner. Johnson has also been producing a couple albums and […]
