Lakeshore Records: BARELY LETHAL - Mateo Messina


Lakeshore Records will release the BARELY LETHAL – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, featuring the original music composed by Mateo Messina (JUNO, BUTTER). The recording will be released digitally on June 16, 2015 and on CD later this year.

“The protagonist is a badass secret agent, but at the same time she’s a teenage girl who just wants to fit in,” said Messina. “I wanted to honor all of her ‘inner badass’ while still playing her vulnerability as a teenager.” 

In this high school action comedy, a teenage special ops agent named Megan (Hailee Steinfeld), yearning for a “normal” adolescence, fakes her own death and enrolls as an exchange student in a typical American high school. She quickly learns that surviving the treacherous waters of high school can be more difficult than international espionage. BARELY LETHAL also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Alba, and Jaime King.
 


“The viewer begins this film in an intense world of spies, action, training, drama, and just a lot of fighting with fists, feet, and guns,” explained Messina. “But then we transition to an entire new world, the small Anywhere American town of Newton. Despite the difference, this mundane little town is the greatest place in the world to Megan. The score had to reflect the town’s small-time charm without feeling like too much of a disconnect from the rest of the world. While I switched up the style and instrumentation dramatically, I made sure there were hints of our theme inside it melodically so viewers would always be a connected to the whole story just as Megan is.”

A24 and Main Street Films present BARELY LETHAL, currently available in limited release and on VOD. The BARELY LETHAL – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available digitally on June 16, 2015 and on CD later this year.
