Harry Escott has recently recorded his score for the upcoming drama Shame. The movie is directed by Steve McQueen who previously directed the 2008 BAFTA-nominated drama Hunger. Shame stars Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan, James Badge Dale, Nicole Beharie and Hannah Ware. The drama centers on a thirtysomething man living in New York who is battling his sex addiction and has to deal with the arrival of his troubled sister. McQueen co-wrote the screenplay with Abi Morgan (Brick Lane, the upcoming The Iron Lady). Iain Canning and Emile Sherman (The King’s Speech) are producing. Shame is set for a world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month. Momentum Pictures has recently announced a release date on January 13, 2012 in the UK. The movie has also distribution set in place in many international territories. A domestic distribution deal has yet to be announced.

Escott is best known for scoring the critically acclaimed 2005 thriller Hard Candy starring Patrick Wilson and Ellen Page. He also co-scored Michael Winterbottom’s A Might Heart starring Angelina Jolie with Molly Nyman, as well as the documentary The Road to Guantanamo.
