Episode 98: Drew Pearce On Hotel Artemis and Cliff Martinez

Jul 20, 2018, 08:23 PM

It's a very special episode of Soundtracking for Edith this week, as we welcome first-time director Drew Pearce to the show.

Edith and Drew have known each other for nearly 20 years, during which time he's co-written Iron Man 3 and provided the story for Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

His debut feature as a director is Hotel Artemis, which is set in the near future and tells the story of a nurse who runs a hospital for criminals. Despite being new to the directing game, Drew has assembled a quite incredible cast - headed up by Jodie Foster in her first major acting role for 5 years. Jeff Goldblum, Sofia Boutella and Sterling K Brown are among those providing support.

He also managed to persuade composer Cliff Martinez to score the movie, and we get plenty of insights into how the great man operates.
