Does the U.N.C.L.E. movie have a composer?

Shoutout to @laneyboggs2001 on Twitter for the tip.

There’s been no announcement, but Wikipedia lists Theodore Shapiro as composer for The Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie.

The online encyclopedia actually has done it twice, both in its ENTRY FOR THE MOVIE as well as its BIO OF SHAPIRO. Meanwhile, IMDB.com’s LISTING FOR THE MOVIE still doesn’t have a composer.

Both Wikipedia and IMDB rely on users to supply information. Editors try to police data for accuracy but errors can creep into both websites.

Shapiro, 42, was born more than three years after the end of the original 1964-68 U.N.C.L.E. television series. To listen to samples of his work you can CLICK HERE to hear a suite from The Devil Wears Prada; HERE for a suite of tracks he composed for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty; and HERE for a track from Marley & Me.

Besides the obvious question of whether Wikipedia is even correct, it remains to be seen whether the movie’s composer will use Jerry Goldsmith’s theme music from the original show.

The movie, starring Henry Cavill as Napoleon Solo and Armie Hammer as Illya Kuryakin, will debut in the U.S. in January 2015.
