Love Is the Drug was written by Wesley Strick (Arachnophobia, Cape Fear, The Glass House) and is staring Lizzy Caplan (Mean Girls, Orange County, Geeks and Freaks). The teen drama focuses on the coming of age of a group of teens in that transitional summer between high school, and college, where love is explored and mortality is challenged.
Matt is currently working on Walt Disney PicturesÂ Shaggy Dog and Element FilmÂs Down In the Valley. Other film and television credits include executive producer of the soundtrack for BravoÂs hit series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and music supervisor on Lion Gate FilmsÂ Wonderland (Val Kilmer, Kate Bosworth, Lisa Kudrow), as well as soundtrack executive producer through Epic/ Sony Music Soundtrax. ÂMattÂs cutting edge sound will add an element to Love Is the Drug that will help drive the storyÂ stated Ryan Carroll, and added, Â The soundtrack works as a fifth character enhancing the mood and helping to build emotion, and Matt has demonstrated his finesse in this area working with Val Kilmer (Heat, The Doors, Batman Returns) on Wonderland.Â
Prior to turning his attention towards film, Matt worked with the top music labels such as Warner / Reprise Records, Capitol Records, Imago Recording Company and Morgan Creek Music Group. Jed Nolan expressed ÂWe are very excited to have Matt as part of our team, and are very encouraged by the soundtrack possibilities that he brings to the project.Â While at these labelÂs Matt worked with such talent as Orgy, Goo Goo Dolls, The Living End, and Earshot, as well as the teen favorite, chart topping Green Day. In addition to these groups he has also worked with The Cocteau Twins, Megadeath, Smoking Popes, Korn, and The Beasties Boys.
