william-rossWilliam Ross is set to collaborate with Robby Krieger, the guitarist of The Doors, and Pablo Manzarek, the son of Ray Manzarek, on the soundtrack for the upcoming drama The Poet in Exile. The film is written and directed by Tim Sullivan and will explore the urban legend that Jim Morrison is still alive. The movie is based on a novel written by Ray Manzarek, which suggests that Morrison staged his death in 1971 and later contacted Manzarek from his hiding place in the Seychelles Islands to embark on one last journey of rock ‘n’ roll rebellion. Harrison Ford is reportedly considered to play Manzarek. Sullivan is also producing the project for New Rebellion and Krieger serves as an executive producer. Ross has previously scored Sullivan’s feature Driftwood. No production start date has been set yet for The Poet in Exile. (Variety)
