Posted in News on November 4, 2003
BMI composer David Kitay is finishing up his score for the December 5 release of the holiday comedy "Bad Santa," starring Billy Bob Thornton, Bernie Mac, Lauren Graham and the late John Ritter. The film, directed by Terry Zwigoff of "Ghost World" fame, is the story of two criminals who disguise themselves as Santa Claus (Thornton) and his elf, traveling across the country to major malls, using the good will people have towards Santa to rob the stores blind. The plan is going great until the two baddies meet an introverted 8-year-old boy who reminds them of the true meaning of Christmas.

Shown at the scoring session are "Bad Santa" director Terry Zwigoff, BMI's Doreen Ringer Ross, BMI composer David Kitay and actor Tony Cox (front row).
