#SDCC15: Robert Kirkman’s Outcast Lands a Composer as it Heads to Comic-Con

Published

Outcast

We told you a while back that Cinemax picked up Robert Kirkman’s exorcism drama pilot “Outcast” with a 10-episode order, and we also included it in our San Diego Comic-Con horror highlights for July 11th, where you’ll be getting one of the first tastes of what’s to come.  Now the series has landed a composer.

From the Press Release:
FOX International Studios (FIS) 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 (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 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 the 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 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,” added Sharon Tal Yguado, Head of FOX International Studios.

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 (Kyle Barnes), Philip Glenister (Reverend Anderson), and Wrenn Schmidt (Megan Holter). Kumail Nanjiani (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”) will moderate, followed by a fan autograph signing at 5:45 p.m at Warner Bros. Booth #4545.

“Outcast,” the TV adaptation of Kirkman/Skybound’s comic book by the same name, was developed by FIS and was picked up to series by Cinemax in the US and by FOX International Channels (FIC) outside the US earlier this year. 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.

Kirkman serves as executive producer alongside David Alpert of Circle of Confusion, Sue Naegle of Naegle Inc., and Sharon Tal Yguado of FIS.

Body-Horror Frankenstein AKA Larry Fessenden’s New Flick Depraved

Published

on

I’m not sure if you guys are aware or not, but legendary horror producer Larry Fessenden is all set to return to the director’s chair with his Frankenstein flick Depraved.

You can check out the film’s poster to the right and a rundown on its cast, crew, and synopsis below.

But today we have a new update on the film as Fessenden recently sat down with Daily Dead and discussed the film a bit more in-depth.

“In a funny way, I want to make all the classics again,” Fessenden told the site. “I’ve made a vampire movie. I want to make a werewolf movie, but Frankenstein is one of the greatest creations of pop culture. The original version is a masterpiece, and oddly enough, it’s a story that hasn’t been done that well since. And it’s often attempted. I feel there’s a core theme in that story that I would like to explore and bring it very much back to this idea of loneliness.”

He continues: “It’s about waking up, and you’re someone, and you don’t know who you are or why you are. And then there’s the question of what brought you into this world. In my story, there will be conflict of the parental figures as the scientist who made him and the other people around him. I’m very interested in the subjective lonely experience of being alive in this world and in this culture, and Frankenstein is such a fantastic, iconic way to look at it. And also, there is the physical body horror aspect to this story, of someone being sewn together, and there’s identity horror, too. There’s so much possibility in it that I’m just overflowing with excitement.”

Are you excited about Larry Fessenden’s return to directing? Let us know below!

Depraved is written and directed by Larry Fessenden and set to star David Call, Joshua Leonard and Alex Breaux as the monster. The movie will be produced by Fessenden, Jenn Wexler, and Chadd Harbold.

The film begins shooting this month.

Synopsis:

The contemporary re-imagining of Mary Shelley’s timeless classic Frankenstein centers on Henry, a field surgeon suffering from PTSD after combat in the Middle East, who creates a man out of body parts in a makeshift lab in Gowanus, Brooklyn. The creature he creates must navigate a strange new world and the rivalry between Henry and his conniving collaborator Polidori.
