Dan Haseltine, lead singer of the multi-platinum and multi-GRAMMY Award winning band Jars of Clay recently completed the soundtrack for the film “Hometown Legend,” which begins its run in theaters on January 25.
Haseltine, whose work has appeared in numerous films and television dramas, composed the original music for the film and produced the soundtrack which includes two Jars of Clay songs.
Based on the novel by Jerry B. Jenkins, the best-selling co-author of the Left Behind series, Hometown Legend tells the story of a small Alabama town’s high school football team in the last year of the school’s existence. The once-proud town hasn’t been the same since a tragedy in the state football game 12 years earlier and county cutbacks are forcing the school to close. But a legendary coach, a feisty student, and a mysterious drifter help bring the team back to glory – and pride and tradition returns to the town.
“I’ve been a huge fan of Jars of Clay for years,” said the film’s producer, author Jenkins’ 25-year old son Dallas, “and it’s long been a dream of mine to work with Dan Haseltine on a project. The score as well as the songs he put together are even better than we had hoped for.”
“It has been exciting for me to be a part of something that has such high redemptive content as well as high artistic merit since very few films have both qualities,” said Haseltine about his collaboration with Jenkins Entertainment and Hometown Legend.
The feature film produced by Jenkins Entertainment and distributed by Warner Bros., was directed by James Anderson and stars Terry O’ Quinn (The Cutting Edge), Lacey Chabert (Party of Five), Kirk Woller (A.I.) and newcomer Nick Cornish.
Hometown Legend is scheduled for release in selected cities January 25 and its soundtrack is scheduled for distribution shortly after.
