Texan post-rockers Explosions In The Sky have revealed they will score the new Al Pacino film.

The band have already penned the soundtrack to director David Gordon Green's Prince Avalanche with composer David Wingo, which will be released in the US next week (August 9). Now they will also be working on Green's next project, Manglehorn, which will begin shooting this autumn with Pacino in the title role of AJ Manglehorn.

In an interview with HitFix, the band's drummer Chris Hrasky and David Wingo said they would be reuniting in late 2013 to compose the soundtrack. "We'll spend the end of the year diving into that," Hrasky said, adding that Wingo will also play with the band live this autumn both at their headline dates and supporting Nine Inch Nails on their comeback tour.

Hrasky also said that Explosions In The Sky will start work on their seventh album, the follow-up to 2011's 'Take Care, Take Care, Take Care', in 2014. The band released their debut album 'How Strange, Innocence' in 2000.
