Just finished the score to Fired Up!, for director Will Gluck and Sony/Screen Gems. This one oughta do great biz - very funny teen comedy about a pair of pals, studs of their high school, star football players, who decide to sign up for the cheerleading squad so they can go to cheer camp with 300 beautiful girls. As in most of the teen comedies I've scored (Say Anything, Ten Things I Hate About You, John Tucker Must Die) there is not a whole lot of score because of the preponderance of songs, but I had fun with the themes. The main theme I actually developed into a pretty killer pop song with my friend Mark Hoppus (Blink 182, +44). Keep an ear out for it in the end title and hopefully on the radio - it's called Until the Stars Fall.
Next back to Tracey Ullman's State of the Union. Life is good.
