Director Darren Aronofsky and composer Clint Mansell will speak about their award-winning film “The Wrestler” at the Hollywood Reporter/Billboard Film/TV Music conference, to be held Nov. 13-14 at the Hotel Sofitel in Los Angeles.
The panel will be moderated by Doreen Ringer Ross, VP of film/tv relations at BMI.
“Clint has scored all of Darren’s films since the beginning with ‘Pi’ and they have essentially grown up in this business together,” Ringer Ross says. “They are a perfect example of a successful director/composer collaboration.”
“The Wrestler” stars Mickey Rourke as a retired professional wrestler attempting a comeback. Earlier this year it won the Golden Lion, the top honor at the Venice Film Festival.
Besides “The Wrestler” Aronofsky and Mansell have worked together on three films, including 1998’s “Pi,” 2000’s “Requiem for a Dream” and 2006’s “The Fountain,” for which Mansell-once the lead singer and guitarist of British band Pop Will Eat Itself-received a Golden Globe nomination for best original score.
