Atli Orvarsson has signed on to score the upcoming thriller Jacob’s Ladder. The film is directed by David Rosenthal and stars Michael Ealy, Jesse Williams and Nicole Beharie. The movie is based on Adrian Lynne’s 1990 feature starring Tim Robbins. No plot details have been announced yet. Jeff Buhler and Sarah Thorp (The Bounty Hunter) have written the screenplay. Mickey Liddell (The Grey, Go, Jackie), Pete Shilaimon (Risen) & Jennifer Monroe (Disconnect) are producing the project for LD Entertainment, alongside Alison Rosenzweig (Fright Night, Windtalkers) & Michael Gaeta of Gaeta/Rosenzweig Films and Will Packer (Ride Along, Think Like a Man) for his production company. Orvarsson has previously collaborated with Rosenthal on 2013’s A Single Shot and last year’s The Perfect Guy. Jacob’s Ladder is currently in post-production and is expected to be released in 2017.
Orvarsson also recently scored the coming-of-age comedy drama The Edge of Seventeen, which just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and will be released this November. His upcoming feature projects also include the animated feature Ploey – You Never Fly Alone.
