Michael Giacchino (Up, Star Trek, Lost, Jurassic World, The Incredibles, Ratatouille) is teaming up with Nami Melumad (Absentia) to score the upcoming comedy An American Pickle. The film marks the feature solo directorial debut of cinematographer Brandon Trost and stars Seth Rogen, Maya Erskine and Sarah Snook. The movie revolves around an immigrant worker at a pickle factory who is accidentally preserved for a century and wakes up in modern day Brooklyn. Simon Rich (Man Seeking Woman, Miracle Workers) wrote the screenplay. Rogen is also producing the Point Grey production with Evan Goldberg (This Is the End, The Interview) and James Weaver (Neighbors, The Disaster Artist). Giacchino has previously scored the 2011 feature 50/50 for the producers. An American Pickle is expected to be released in 2020 by Sony Pictures.

Giacchino’s upcoming projects also include Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, which will premiere next month at the Toronto Film Festival before being released on October 18 by Fox Searchlight. Melumad continues to score Amazon’s Stana Katie-starring series Absentia, which will return for its third season in 2020.

Very few new film scores of the 2020s will receive a physical CD release

This ended up being one of my favorite scores of 2020, though 2020 wasn't exactly rich with great scores, and it's nowhere near my top Giacchinos overall.

Well worth a listen if any Giacchino fans haven't checked it out yet
