Warren Ellis has confirmed in a recent interview with The Guardian that he has reteamed with Nick Cave to score the upcoming Netflix original film Blonde. The movie is written and directed by Andrew Dominik (Killing Them Softly, Chopper) and stars Ana de Armas, Adrien Brody, Bobby Cannavale, Julianne Nicholson, Garret Dillahunt, Scoot McNairy, Lucy DeVito, Michael Masini, Lily Fisher, Evan Williams, Xavier Samuel, Caspar Phillipson, Toby Huss, Sara Paxton, David Warshofksy and Spencer Garrett. The drama based on the best-selling novel of the same title by Joyce Carol Oates is described as a fictional portrait of Marilyn Monroe and centers on the model, actress, and singer during the ’50s and ’60s, told through the modern lens of celebrity culture. Plan B Entertainment’s Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner & Jeremy Kleiner (12 Years a Slave, Moonlight) are producing the project with Tracey Landon and Scott Robertson.Cave & Ellis (The Proposal, Hell or High Water, The Road, Lawless) have previously collaborated with Dominik on 2007’s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. We have previously confirmed that first recording sessions for the Blonde score took place last year at AIR Studios in London. The film is expected to premiere in 2022 on Netflix.

Ellis has also recently scored Marie Amiguet’s documentary The Velvet Queen, which just premiered last month at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival and has been picked up by Oscilloscope Laboratories for domestic distribution.
