Atticus Ross signs on to score Robert Kirkman's upcoming series Outcast.
FOX International Studios (FIS) has announced that Atticus Ross, Grammy, Golden Globe and Academy Award-winning composer, producer and electronic musician is on board to score Robert Kirkman’s upcoming exorcism drama, Outcast, produced for Cinemax by FOX International Studios (FIS). This marks Ross’ television series score debut.
Ross’ acclaimed film work includes the score for David Fincher’s The Social Network, which earned him the Academy Award and the Golden Globe, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl with long-time collaborator Trent Reznor. He also composed the music for Hughes Brothers’ The Book of Eli, Bill Pohlad’s Love & Mercy and Michael Mann’s Blackhat among others. Ross first garnered attention in the mid-1990’s as a programmer for Tim Simeon’s Bomb the Bass, and later for co-producing and programming five Nine Inch Nails albums with Reznor: With Teeth, Year Zero, The Slip, the instrumental Ghosts I-IV and Hesitation Marks.
“Who can’t recall the shrieking violins in the Psycho shower scene or the repetitious two-notes that play before a shark attack in Jaws?” said Kirkman. “A haunting and epic score is critical in the telling of horror on any screen, and we’re privileged to have Atticus on board to help illustrate Kyle Barnes’ story.”
“I’m excited to be working with Robert Kirkman and the whole Outcast team. Hopefully we’ll be able to provide sonic justice for Robert’s depraved and brilliant vision.” Said Ross.
“Outcast is an incredibly special series that requires a measured and distinctive sound. Atticus’ musical genius will take the show to a whole new level,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, Head of FOX International Studios.
