Universal Pictures has told Film Music Weekly that composer Danny Elfman has been hired to score Wanted.

Elfman had previously scored the comic book based movies Spider-Man, Hulk, Men In Black, Batman and Dick Tracy.

Wanted is an adaptation of a graphic novel by Mark Miller, which tells the tale of Wesley Gibson, a man who is offered the chance to seek revenge for the murder of his father, who had worked as an assassin by his father's former partner, Sloan.

Wanted is directed by Timur Bekmambetov, and stars James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman and Angelina Jolie.
