C.C. Adcock is scoring the upcoming black comedy Killer Joe. The movie stars Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch, Thomas Haden Church, Gina Gershon and Juno Temple. The film is based on a play by Tracy Letts (Bug) about a family who hires a police detective-turned-hitman to kill their mother for her life insurance policy. Killer Joe is directed by William Friedkin. The Academy Award-winning director has worked with composer Brian Tyler on his two most recent features (The Hunted, Bug). Five-time Oscar nominee Caleb Deschanel is lensing the picture. C.C. Adcock is best known as a rock’n roll musician, noted for his electric blues and swamp pop-influenced sound. He has learnt composition and arranging during his years as an apprentice to Oscar-winning composer Jack Nitzsche. He has previously scored and served as a music supervisor on a number of smaller pictures, but Killer Joe is arguably his most high profile assignment to date. To find out more about C.C.
