Mark Isham is composing the music for the upcoming fantasy romance Fallen. The film is directed by Scott Hicks (Shine, Snow Falling on Cedars, Hearts in Atlantis) and stars Addison Timlin, Jeremy Irvine, Harrison Gilbertson and Joely Richardson. The movie is based on the YA novel by Lauren Kate and follows a shy teen who is suspected of killing a boy and is sent to Sword and Cross reform school, where she is confronted by frequent supernatural occurrences and it becomes clear that the majority of students are fallen angels on the side of good or evil. Mark Ciardi & Gordon Gray (The Rookie, Million Dollar Arm) are producing the project for Mayhem Pictures, alongside Bill Johnson & Jim Seibel (The Women, Just Friends) for Lotus Entertainment. Isham has previously scored Hicks’ last feature The Lucky One. He also composed the music for Mayhem’s Miracle and Invincible. Fallen is expected to be released in 2015.
Isham also has the drama Beyond the Lights (previously entitled Blackbird) coming up next month. The composer also continues to score ABC’s Once Upon a Time.
