It is 140 AD, twenty years after the unexplained disappearance of the entire Ninth Legion in the mountains of Scotland. A young centurion Marcus Aquila arrives from Rome to try and solve the mystery, retrieve the lost legion's golden emblem and restore the reputation of his father, the Commander of the Ninth.

LMO have recently completed work on Atli Örvarsson's score for The Eagle which is directed by Kevin Macdonald, produced by Duncan Kenworthy and stars Channing Tatum and Donald Sutherland. Filming took place exclusively in the Scottish Highlands.

Atli's score involved 2 days of recording at Abbey Road studio 1. 2 sessions were convened for 38 strings (10 first violins, 10 seconds, 8 violas, 6 celli and 4 double basses), one session for 44 strings and a further session for 16 celli and 6 double basses. Finally, a brass session comprised 6 horns, 3 tenor trombones, bass trombone and tuba. Andy Brown conducted all the sessions and orchestrations were by Julian Kershaw. Further overdub sessions for the score were contributed by Scottish fiddlers, an ancient Scottish instrument called the Carnyx, Celtic Harp and Cimbalon at British Grove studios.

Steve Mclaughlin produced all the sessions for The Eagle which was recently released by Focus Features in the US.
