Nathan Barr has revealed in a recent interview at the BMI Film and Television Music Awards that he will be scoring Eli Roth’s upcoming Netflix original series Hemlock Grove. The show created by Brian McGreevey & Lee Shipman and based on McGreevy’s upcoming goth horror novel revolves around the murder of a young girl found close to the former Godfrey steel mill. The series’ cast includes Famke Janssen, Dougray Scott, Landon Liboiron and Bill Skarsgard. Roth is directing the pilot as well as the final two episodes. The Gaumont International Television production is executive produced by McGreevy, Eric Newman (The Last Exorcism, Dawn of the Dead, Children of Men) Michael Connolly (How to Train Your Dragon) and Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Gallactica). Barr and Roth have previously collaborated on numerous projects, including the horror feature Cabin Fever and the first two Hostel films. Hemlock Grove‘s first season of 13 episodes is scheduled to premiere in early 2013 on Netflix.
Barr is also continuing to score HBO’s hit series True Blood, which is entering its fifth season this summer. As previously reported, the composer is also scoring the ensemble comedy The Wedding starring Robert De Niro, Katherine Heigl, Susan Sarandon, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, Robin Williams, Ben Barnes and Topher Grace. The movie will be released on October 19, 2012 by Lionsgate.
