Shudder To Think frontman Craig Wedren can add yet another film to his repertoire come October. Wedren has been hired by longtime friend David Wain to score his latest comedy opus “Wanderlust”. The Shudder To Think vocalist is far from a stranger to the former member of the comedy troupe “The State,” previously working on all of the funnyman’s past films not to mention creating the theme songs for both “Reno 911!” and the short lived, yet hysterical, “Stella.” The friendship first began in the MTV days, when Wedren composed music for the fan favorite “The State” and the rest, as they say, is history.
Universal Pictures has set an October 7th release date for “Wanderlust”, which stars Jennifer Aniston, Paul Rudd, Malin Akerman, Ray Liotta, Alan Alda and Justin Theroux. The film, which this past December began post-production, will be the first time Wain has collaborated with comedy heavyweight Judd Apatow. As previously announced, the film, which was written by Wain and Ken Marino, centers on a married couple (Aniston, Rudd) who attempt to escape the fast paced modern society of the big city by moving from New York to a commune.
Wedren will have his hands full this year with plans to not only score the third season of HBO’s “Hung” but also the Showtime hit “The United States of Tara.” — Aaron Fowler
