Harry Gregson-Williams is scoring the upcoming Australian drama Breath. The film marks the feature directorial debut of actor Simon Baker (The Mentalist) and stars Elizabeth Debicki, Richard Roxburgh and Rachael Blake. The movie is based on Tim Winton’s best-selling novel of the same title and follows two teenage boys, hungry for discovery, who form an unlikely friendship with a mysterious older adventurer, who pushes them to take risks that will have a lasting and profound impact on their lives. Baker also co-wrote the screenplay with Winton and Gerard Lee (Top of the Lake) and is producing the project with Mark Johnson (Breaking Bad, The Notebook, Rain Man) and Jamie Hilton (The Little Death). Gregson-Williams has previously scored the Johnson-produced first two installments in The Chronicles of Narnia series. Breath is expected to premiere later this year.
Gregson-Williams’ recent projects also include Niki Caro’s The Zookeeper’s Wife, which opened last weekend and is now playing in theaters nationwide.
