Alex Lifeson The Double film score side project

Wed, Feb 23, 2011@9:27AM | comments

Alex Lifeson briefly mentioned in his VH1 Classic Rock Nights interview 2 weeks ago that one of the side projects that he had been working on recently was a score for a film starring Martin Sheen and Richard Gere. We later learned that the title of the film is The Double and features original music by film composer John Debney. Apparently Skinny Puppy founding member cEvin Key was also involved with the score as demonstrated by this recent post to his Facebook page (thanks bobcat):

collaboration is cool, who would ever guess John Debney, cEvin Key
w Alex Lifeson from Rush and Martin Sheen.

The film is written and directed by Michael Brandt and centers around a retired CIA operative who is paired with a young FBI agent to unravel the mystery of a senator's murder. It's due out later this year but no specific release date has been given yet.
