Kris Bowers is scoring the upcoming drama Green Book. The film is directed by Peter Farrelly (There’s Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber, Me, Myself & Irene) and stars Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali and Linda Cardellini. The movie is set in 1962 and tells the true story of the growing friendship between Tony Lip, a nightclub bouncer who’s been hired to chauffeur the highly-educated African-American piano-playing prodigy Dr. Don Shirley  through the Deep South on a concert tour. Farrelly also co-wrote the screenplay with Nick Vallelonga and Brian Currie. They are also producing the Participant Media production with Jim Burke (The Descendants, Walking Tall) and Charles Wessler (Shallow Hal). Green Book is currently in post-production and is expected to premiere later this year.

Bowers also continues to score ABC’s For the People, which has been renewed for a second season. He also recently scored the second season of Netflix’s Dear White People, the documentary Bethany Hamilton: Unstoppable, which premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, as well as the John David Washington-, Anthony Ramos- & Kelvin Harrison Jr.-starring indie drama Monsters and Men, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and was picked up by Neon for a theatrical release this fall.
