Nico Muhly is the composer of the upcoming drama Kill Your Darlings. The film is directed by John Krokidas and stars Daniel Radcliffe, Elizabeth Olsen, Dane DeHaan, Ben Foster, Michael C. Hall, Kyra Sedgwick, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Jack Huston. The movie tells the previously untold story of murder that brought together a young Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs at Columbia University in 1944, providing the spark that would lead to the Beat Generation. Krokidas has also co-written the screenplay with Austin Bunn and is producing the Killer Films and Benaroya Pictures Pictures with Michael Benaroya (Margin Call, Lawless), Christine Vachon (Far from Heaven, Boys Don’t Cry) and Rose Ganguzza. Muhly’s previous credits include the Academy Award-nominated drama The Reader starring Kate Winslet and last year’s Margaret. Kill Your Darlings is set to premiere in competition next month at the Sundance Film Festival.
