Questlove's taking his talents to the big screen once again.
The Philly native and drummer for The Roots composed the score for the upcoming film "Vincent N Roxxy," a crime thriller starring Emile Hirsch ("Into the Wild," The Girl Next Door") and Zoë Kravitz ("Mad Max: Fury Road," "Divergent").
The film's premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival in April. Here's the description, via Tribeca:
When Vincent saves Roxxy from her violent ex-boyfriend, their lives are suddenly transformed. Strangers thrown together by circumstance, this small town loner and rebellious punk rocker find themselves on the run, hiding from the aftermath of Vincent’s intervention at his family farm. Their brief solace is shattered when they discover a common history and realize that violence and rage is, for them, inescapable.
In 2014, Questlove scored the music for Chris Rock's well-received comedy "Top Five." He's also scored the music for episodes of "Inside Amy Schumer," according to Rolling Stone.
