FOX International Studios today 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. 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 Oscar 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.
San Diego Comic Con goers will get a first look at Outcast on Saturday, July 11, in Room 6DE at 3:00 p.m. Panelists include: creators and executive producers Robert Kirkman and Chris Black, cast members Patrick Fugit, Philip Glenister, and Wrenn Schmidt. Kumail Nanjiani will moderate, followed by a fan autograph signing at 5:45 p.m at the Warner Bros. booth #4545.
The series follows Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a journey to find answers but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it.
Outcast is expected to premiere day & date on Cinemax in the U.S. and across FIC’s FOX-branded entertainment channels in over 125 countries worldwide in 2016.
