By | Published on Thursday 19 April 2018


Run The Jewels’ El-P is set to score new Al Capone biopic ‘Fonzo’. The film will star Tom Hardy as the gangster, with Josh Trank directing.

“Since I was fourteen years old, El-P’s music has been one of the most important creative influences in my life”, says Trank. “There’s literally no greater honour for me than to collaborate with him today and bear witness to this next stage of his artistic journey”.

InĀ a tweet, El-P himself said: “Cat’s out the bag. I’m scoring ‘Fonzo’. Psyched to get the chance to do this shit”.

It’s not the producer’s first film score. He previously worked on the soundtrack for graffiti-themed film ‘Bomb The System’ in 2002.
