NEWS X MUSE Manny Gomez spoke with Jumi Akinfenwa and Rupert Hollier, they are the music supervisors for the new feature film, “Freelance” from Relativity Media starring John Cena, Alison Brie, and Juan Pablo Raba.

During our conversation we learn more about the job of a music supervisor for a film. Including the laborious process of selecting a song and getting it licensed for a film. Also, we learn about some of the perks of the job, including being able to spotlight music that maybe wasn’t very popular at the time of release.

Here is a synopsis for “Freelance” provided by Relativity Media
Ex-special forces operative Mason Pettits (John Cena) is stuck in a dead-end desk job when he reluctantly takes on a freelance gig to provide private security for washed-up journalist Claire Wellington (Alison Brie) as she interviews the ruthless but impeccably dressed dictator, Juan Venegas (Juan Pablo Raba). When a military coup breaks out just as she’s about to get the scoop of a lifetime, the unlikely trio must figure out how to survive the jungle and each other in order to make it out alive.
