What could make the Pushing Daisies comic whimsical? How about a soundtrack! Michael Ausiello posted some new information about the upcoming Pushing Daisies comics in his September 23rd edition of Ask Ausiello. According to Bryan Fuller, licensing fees for the songs still need to be worked out, but he and others working on the project are aiming for a multimedia experience. Below is the direct quote from Fuller:
“Issue number 1 will hopefully be out in early 2011, issue number 2 is being colored as we speak, and issue number 3 is being written. Our Emmy-award-winning composer Jim Dooley and I have been talking about giving the audience a multimedia experience with the comic—specifically a score. We have no idea whether we can actually afford to do an actual Pushing Daisies comic soundtrack (because the cast has agreed to sing songs and those licensing fees are expensive), but Jim has already started composing musical cues that we will either release officially or stream for freesies online when the comic book is published. I’ve already heard the track for Lee Pace’s cover ditty and it’s fantastic.”
We’ve heard Lee sing in Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day and Soldier’s Girl, and it looks like there may be another opportunity forthcoming. Any guesses on what Ned may be singing?
