NEW YORK, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Turner Network Television (TNT) will present the world television premieres of videos by Bob Dylan and Mary Fahl, as featured on Sony Classical's original soundtrack of the upcoming theatrical release of the epic Civil War film "Gods and Generals," during the network's Civil War Marathon, Sunday, January 26. Dylan's "'Cross The Green Mountain" will debut between 5:30-5:45p.m. ET/PT during TNT's presentation of "Gettysburg"; Mary Fahl introduces "Going Home," which features violinist Mark O'Connor and The Chieftains' Paddy Moloney, at the conclusion of "Gone With the Wind" on TNT between 10:45-11 p.m. ET/PT.
"Gods and Generals," from Warner Bros. and Ted Turner Pictures, opens nationwide February 21, with the complete original soundtrack from Sony Classical available on CD February 4. The package also includes a bonus DVD with the Dylan and Fahl videos.
TNT's Civil War Marathon on Sunday, Jan. 26, includes the network's 1993 Original "Gettysburg" at 12 p.m. ET/PT; the treasured classic and Oscar-winning "Gone With the Wind" at 6 p.m. ET/PT; and TNT's Emmy-winning "Andersonville" at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
The music from Sony Classical's original soundtrack powerfully reflects the epic drama of director/writer Ron Maxwell's new Civil War film "Gods and Generals." The soundtrack features John Frizzell and Randy Edelman's score, as well as a pair of haunting, new songs written for the film by the legendary Dylan and new Sony Classical/Odyssey artist Fahl. Adapted from Jeff Shaara's best-selling novel, "Gods and Generals" recreates the dramatic early days of the Civil War, from 1861 until the eve of the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863.
"Gods and Generals" reunites director/writer Maxwell with composer Randy Edelman, who collaborated on the film's original score with John Frizzell; Edelman also wrote the score for Maxwell's acclaimed screen adaptation of Shaara's novel "Gettysburg," for which "Gods and Generals" is a prequel. For "Gods and Generals," Dylan wrote and performs "'Cross the Green Mountain," and Fahl introduces "Going Home," which she wrote with Glenn Patscha and Byron Isaacs.
Warner Bros. and Ted Turner Pictures present Gods and Generals, starring Jeff Daniels, Stephen Lang and Robert Duvall as General Robert E. Lee, with a special appearance by Mira Sorvino. Directed, produced and written for the screen by Ronald F. Maxwell, the film is executive produced by Robert Katz, Moctezuma Esparza and Robert Rehme and Mace Neufeld, and co-executive produced by Nick Grillo and Ronald G. Smith. The creative team includes director of photography Kees Van Oostrum, production designer Michael Hanan, film editor Donald "Corky" Ehlers, costume designer Richard La Motte and Gamila F. Smith, music producer David Franco and composers John Frizzell and Randy Edelman.
