Chris Bacon is currently recording his score for Rob Reiner’s upcoming drama Being Charlie. The movie follows an 18-year-old who breaks out of a youth drug treatment clinic, but when he returns home to Los Angeles, he’s given an intervention by his parents and forced to go to an adult rehab.
The film stars Nick Robinson, Morgan Saylor, Common, Devon Bostick, Susan Misner, Ricardo Chavira and Cary Elwes. Reiner is also producing the project with Simon Goldberg through their Castle Rock Entertainment company, alongside Johnson Chan and Stephanie Rennie.
The director’s son Nick Reiner wrote the screenplay with Matt Elisofon. The film marks Bacon’s first collaboration with Reiner who for the past 25 years has collaborated with composer Marc Shaiman on his films including Misery, A Few Good Men and The Bucket List. Shaiman and Bacon have previously collaborated on the TV show Smash and the feature Parental Guidance. Being Charlie is currently in post-production and is expected to premiere later this year.
