NEW PROJECT: CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS
date: November 11th, 2016

NEW INTERVIEW: ALL ACCESS - THEODORE SHAPIRO
date: September 11th, 2016

Theodore Shapiro will compose the original score for upcoming comedy THE POLKA KING, starring Jack Black, Jason Schwartzman, Jenny Slate and Jacki Weaver. The movie is currently in post-production and was directed by Maya Forbes (Infinitely Polar Bear) and Wallace Wolodarsky who also co-wrote the screenplay based on Joshua Brown and John Mikulak’s 2009 documentary The Man Who Would Be Polka King, which followed the rise and fall of Jan Lewan, a Pennsylvania polka sensation who unwittingly brought a town to its knees in a Ponzi scheme.

David Permut and banner Permut Presentations produce alongside Black’s Electric Dynamite, Priyanka Mattoo, Ben Stiller’s Red Hour and Shivani Rawat’s ShivHans Pictures. No specific release date has been announced.

Theodore Shapiro has signed on to score upcoming CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS for DreamWorks Animation. The movie is directed by Rob Letterman (Goosebumps, Shark Tale) and tells the story of two kids who hypnotize their mean high school principal and turn him into their comic book creation, the kind-hearted and elastic-banded Captain Underpants. Nicholas Stoller (Fun with Dick and Jane, Zoolander 2) wrote the screenplay based on the book by Dav Pilkey.

The movie, which is currently in production, should be released by 20th Century Fox on June 2nd, 2017 and will feature the voice talents of Kevin Hart, Nick Kroll, Kristen Schaal and Ed Helms.

New interview with Theodore Shapiro has been published earlier this week by Film Music Media. You can watch it above. The interview covers many topics including beginnings in the business, working with Ben Stiller, his approach when scoring comedy as well as specific projects and collaborations in detail. Most of the interview is devoted to his work on Ghostbusters.
