Varese Sarabande: LIFE OF CRIME [2014] - The Newton Brothers


Varèse Sarabande Records will release LIFE OF CRIME – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally and will be available as a disc-on-demand, date TBA. The soundtrack features the original score composed by The Newton Brothers (OCULUS, PROXY).  LIFE OF CRIME opens in theaters, on demand, and on iTunes on August 29, 2014.

“This movie is really a dark comedy,” said Taylor Newton. “But it has moments of tension, suspense and even some romance. Overall the director, Daniel Schecter, was very minimalistic in his approach to music, for a lot of the scenes we had to pull way back. It was mainly about having a cool groove or riff, and keeping it super simple.”


Based on Elmore Leonard's novel The Switch, LIFE OF CRIME is a dark caper comedy starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, Yasiin Bey, Will Forte, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher and Tim Robbins. The wife (Jennifer Aniston) of a corrupt real estate developer (Tim Robbins) is kidnapped by two common criminals (Yasiin Bey and John Hawkes) who intend to extort him with inside information about his crooked business and off-shore accounts. But the husband decides he'd actually rather not pay the ransom to get back his wife, setting off an unbelievable sequence of double crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of Elmore Leonard.

“Because this takes place in the 70’s we used a lot of vintage instruments and recording techniques from that period,” explained Taylor Newton. “We used bongos, organs, wah-guitar, flute, trumpet, and others, but we also sprinkled a little synthesizers underneath it to give it a slight modern feel at times.”

Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions present LIFE OF CRIME, in theaters, on demand, and on iTunes on August 29, 2014.   LIFE OF CRIME - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack from Varèse Sarabande Records will be available digitally on August 25, 2104.
