Omar El-Deeb is onboard to compose original score for British drama film Bet Your Bottom Dollar The Los Angeles-based Egyptian composer, who score sound-designed the second season of the hit Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian, has signed on to compose an original score for the upcoming film Bet Your Bottom Dollar.

The British indie drama follows Jack, a young man from Bolton, England, as he travels in Southern France. His gambling addiction quickly leads to him being indebted to the fictional French betting firm, Parier 24. News of El-Deeb’s boarding follows announcements in November that Paterson Joseph (The Beach, Vigil, Noughts + Crosses) had been cast in a leading voice role as the character Victor, an employee at Parier 24. Joseph is joined by César Award-nominated Marc Duret (Outlander, La Haine, The Big Blue), in the voice role of François, Joseph’s colleague at Parier 24, as well as Cameron Ashplant (Marooned Awakening, The Last Bus) in the lead role as Jack.

Omar El-Deeb has composed for several award-winning documentaries, including Breaking Bread which explores the relationship between Jews and Arab in Israel and Palestine over food. More recently, El-Deeb has turned to narrative works. He composed the score for the crime horror film Sound of Violence, starring Lili Simmons and Jasmin Savoy Brown.
