Trevor Rabin scores Get Smart

Posted on January 23, 2008 by Dan Goldwasser

Recently, composer Trevor Rabin was at the Eastwood Scoring Stage at Warner Brothers recording his score to the new comedy feature film version of the 1960s television series "Get Smart". Directed by Peter Segal (Tommy Boy), the film focuses on CONTROL’s inept Agent 86 – Maxwell Smart (Steve Carell) and Agent 99 (Anne Hathaway), as they battle the forces of KAOS, and its key operative Siegfried (Terence Stamp).
