Oliver Coates (AftersunThe StrangerSignificant Other), Korean composer Park Jiha and singer/songwriter Agnes Obel have provided the original score for the new sci-fi thriller Foe. The film is directed by Garth Davis (Lion, Mary Magdalene) and stars Saoirse Ronan, Paul Mescal and Aaron Pierre. The movie is based on the novel of the same title by Iain Reid and follows a married couple living on a secluded piece of land whose quiet life is thrown into turmoil when an uninvited stranger shows up at their door with a startling proposal. Davis also co-wrote the screenplay with Reid (I’m Thinking of Ending Things) and is producing the project with Kerry Kohansky-Roberts (Boy Erased, The Stranger) and See-Saw Films’ Emile Sherman & Iain Canning (The King’s Speech, The Power of the Dog). Foe will premiere this coming Saturday, September 30, at the New York Film Festival and will be released in theaters nationwide on October 6 by MGM/Amazon Studios.

Coates’ other recent projects include Steve McQueen’s documentary Occupied City, which premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and will be released in theaters on December 25 by A24. He also co-scored Dominic Savage’s Close to You (starring Elliot Page), which just premiered earlier this month at the Toronto International Film Festival.
