[ October 19th 2004 ]

Oscar-winning Greek composer Vangelis is creating the original score for Oliver Stone's Alexander, an epic retelling of the story of the legendary Greek conqueror-hero Alexander the Great, with Colin Farrell in the title role. An Intermedia film in association with IMF with a cast that includes Academy Award winners Angelina Jolie and Sir Anthony Hopkins as well as Val Kilmer, Jared Leto, Rosario Dawson and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Alexander opens nationwide from Warner Bros. on Wednesday, November 24, 2004. Sony Classical will release the film's original soundtrack recording on Tuesday, November 9, 2004.

Vangelis has created a musical setting that captures both the epic scale and the human drama of this spectacular film, which is both written and directed by multiple Oscar winner Oliver Stone (Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, JFK). "I've always admired Oliver's films," Vangelis says, "and, of course, Alexander the Great is a story that's a natural part of my heritage. So, to be composing for this film, with Oliver Stone directing, makes it an especially exciting experience for me."
