Lorne Balfe is composing the score for the upcoming British indie thriller Bone in the Throat. The film marks the feature directorial debut of commercials director Graham Henman and stars Ed Westwick, John Hannah, Tom Wilkinson, Vanessa Kirby, Rupert Graves, Steven Mackintosh and Neil Maskell. The movie is based on the best-selling novel by Anthony Bourdain and follows a chef at the hottest restaurant in London’s East End who becomes embroiled in his uncle’s underground mob activity when he witnesses him commit a murder. Henman has also co-written the screenplay with Mark Townend. Lenny Beckerman and Peter Heslop are producing the project. Bone in the Throat is expected to premiere in 2015.
Also coming up for Balfe is DreamWorks Animation’s Home, the thriller Captive starring David Oyolewo & Kate Mara and the comedy drama Dough starring Jonathan Pryce. The composer’s recent projects also include the animated feature Penguins of Madagascar, which is currently playing in theaters.
