Stephen Warbeck has recently composed the music for the upcoming British drama The Journey. The film is directed by Nick Hamm (The Hole, Godsend) and stars Timothy Spall, Colm Meaney, John Hurt, Toby Stephens and Freddie Highmore. The movie centers on the events preceding the historic 2006 St. Andrews Agreement, which brought peace to Northern Ireland after years of violent strife between Unionist and Republican factions. Colin Bateman (Divorcing Jack, Murphy’s Law) has written the screenplay. Hamm is also producing the project with Piers Tempest (Robot Overlords, Grabbers), Mark Huffam (The Martian, Johnny English), Matt Jackson (End of Watch, Snitch) and Stuart Ford. Warbeck and Hamm have previously collaborated on 2013’s Killing Bono. The Journey is set to premiere next month at the Toronto Film Festival.
Warbeck whose previous scoring credits include Shakespeare in Love, Billy Elliott, Quills and Proof has also recently composed the music for the documentary India in a Day produced by ScottFree Films & Google. A release later this year is expected.
