Librarians And Leverage Composer Scores New David Tennant Film Bad Samaritan

Image
Composer Joseph LoDuca, who composed the scores for TV shows The Librarians and Leverage, has recently provided the music for the new David Tennant feature film Bad Samaritan. The movie is directed by Dean Devlin, and, like the TV shows, is produced by Devlin's own company Electric Entertainment.

Bad Samaritan centres on two young car valets, played by Robert Sheehan and Carlito Olivero, who use their business at a high class restaurant as a front to target victims for their criminal activities. While their wealthy patrons are inside dining, the enterprising crooks are off robbing their houses. The plan is working well until they break into the home of one Cale Erendreich, played by David Tennant, and find more than they bargained for. The movie was scripted by Brandon Boyce and co-stars Kerry Condon and Jacqueline Byers. 
Dean Devlin has previously said that Bad Samaritan is headed for a release date in early 2018.

Nothing is concrete yet, but there is a possibility that David Tennant could make a return to one of his earliest and best loved TV roles. Donna Franceschild, the creator of the BBC Scotland TV series Takin' Over The Asylum, says that she has been approached to write a sequel to the show. The BAFTA-award winning series first aired in 1994 and bravely tackled the difficult subject of mental illness. The series follows hospital radio DJ Eddie, played by Ken Stott, who is sent to revive the broadcasting service at a run down Glasgow mental institution where he attracts a willing team of volunteers from among the patients, each with their own story to tell. Among them is Campbell, a young bipolar man, played by the then unknown David Tennant, who was 23 at the time. 

Talking to Edi Stark on the BBC Radio Scotland show Stark Talk last week, Donna Franceschild explained that she was invited out to lunch by the series director David Blair who asked her if she would be interested in making…
