The upcoming Rogue Warrior : Robot Fighter has signed heavy metal sensations Rhapsody of Fire to work on the film, the film's reps announced this weekend.
Director Neil Johnson has worked with many established music artists, including Rhapsody whom he has been associated with since 2002.
“Rhapsody of Fire were long described in the press as “epic heavy metal”, because their music sounded like a giant movie soundtrack – so this is perfect beyond imagination”, said Johnson.
Staropoli, the primary composer of Rhapsody Of Fire, is currently signed to AFM records. The Italian virtuoso has worked alongside orchestras since the turn of the century, and is finally fulfilling his destiny to be composing music in a similar vein to Ennio Morricone , who won this year’s Oscar for Best Music.
“I’m so happy that Rhapsody of Fire will be composing the music for Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter and the accompanying soundtrack”, says Rogue Warrior : Robot Fighter star Tracey Birdsall. “I’ve always been a fan of their music, and I think their music will bring so much life to the film… This is a very exciting time for us! Their compositions are deep and full of life…”
Birdsall (Dawn of the Crescent Moon) leads a cast including Daz Crawford (Blade II), William Kircher (The Hobbit), Stephen Manley (Star Trek III : The Search for Spock), Livvy Stubenrauch (Frozen), Erin Bethea (Fireproof), Tim McGrath, Ashley Park, and Aaron Jacques (I Might Even Love You) in Rogue Warrior : Robot Fighter. The film depicts “the overthrow of humanity by Artificial Intelligence”. It’s expected to be the first in a franchise. Release date to be announced.
