A.R. Rahman to score 'Couples Retreat'

'Slumdog' composer joins Vince Vaughn production

Composer/musician A.R. Rahman, who picked up two Oscars for his work on "Slumdog Millionaire," will compose the score for Universal's upcoming comedy "Couples Retreat."

It will be Rahman's first score for an American film.

"Couples," directed by Peter Billingsley, stars Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau, Malin Akerman, Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell and Faizon Love and is based on an original idea of Vaughn's about four Midwestern couples who embark on a journey to a tropical island resort.

Vaughn is producing for his Wild West Picture Show Productions alongside Scott Stuber for Stuber Productions.
