A.R. Rahman gets his first U.S. gig

Variety has the details:
A.R. Rahman, the Oscar-winning "Slumdog Millionaire" composer, has agreed to score his first American feature.
Rahman will compose the score to "Couples Retreat," the Peter Billingsley-directed Universal Pictures comedy that stars Vince Vaughn.
Based on an idea by Vaughn, the pic follows four couples who head to a tropical resort, where one couple plans to work on their marriage.
-Good for him...thoughts?


  1. indeed, go A.R.

  2. kind of an odd project for him, but ok

  3. he should have a long career

  4. He's already had a long career. He makes about 50% of Bollywood's scores. He's was a millionaire even before Slumdog Millionaire.
