Mica Levi received an Oscar nomination this year for her ominous and surprising contribution to Jackie, making her the first woman recognized in Best Original Score in quite some time. But Levi’s career hasn’t been limited to the world of cinema, which makes her the perfect fit for Vox Lux, a drama about the life of a pop star played by Rooney Mara. The Film Stage reports Levi—who has also performed as part of Micachu & The Shapes—will compose the score for the film from Brady Corbet. The director has already enlisted Sia to write some of its songs, making this one of the most sonically exciting projects in the pipeline.
Levi is also behind the music for Marjorie Prime, which recently premiered at Sundance. Vox Lux is billed as something of an epic, spanning 15 years in the life of Mara’s character.
