LD Entertainment and director Sean Ellis announced today that Lorne Balfe (Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Black Widow, His Dark Materials, The Wheel of Time, The Lego Batman Movie, Bad Boys for Life) has contributed an updated score to the gothic thriller The Cursed. The film, which premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival under the title Eight for Silver with an original score by Robin Foster, is written and directed by Ellis (CashbackThe Broken) and stars Boyd Holbrook, Kelly Reilly, Alistair Petrie, Roxane Duran and Áine Rose Daly. The movie is set in the late 1800s and follows a man who arrives in a remote country village to investigate an attack by a wild animal but discovers a much deeper and sinister force that has the manor and its townspeople in its grip. Ellis is also producing the project with Pete Shilaimon (RisenMegan Leavey) and Mickey Liddell (JackieThe Grey). “Sundance is always an incredible place to showcase your work. In the time that has followed that valuable experience, we took the opportunity to invigorate the film with an updated score by Lorne Balfe”, Ellis stated in a press release while also mentioning changes in the film’s edit and CGI work. The Cursed will be released in theaters nationwide on February 18, 2022.
