Atticus Ross signs on to score Robert Kirkman’s upcoming exorcism drama ‘Outcast’


FOX International Studios announced that Grammy, Golden Globe, and Academy Award-winning composer and producer Atticus Ross has signed on to score Robert Kirkman’s upcoming exorcism drama Outcast. This would mark the first time for Ross to score for a television show.

His previous works includes David Fincher’s The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Gone Girl, The Book of Eli, Love & Mercy, and Blackhat.

Ross commented, “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.”

“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.”

Outcast is a TV adaptation of Kirkman/Skybound’s comic book of the same name. The series follows Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now, as an adult, he must find answers that can save Earth and life as we know it.

Outcast is set to premiere in 2016 on Cinemax.
