Nathan Whitehead is scoring the upcoming sci-fi thriller Vigilandia. The film written and directed by James DeMonaco (screenwriter of The Negotiator and Assault on Precint 13) stars Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Edwin Hodge and Rhys Wakefield. The movie takes place in a future where a new regime, called “New Founding Fathers of America”, seek to control an epidemic of violence and crime with an experiment called “The Cure”. The thriller is produced by Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street) for Platinum Dunes Productions and Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, Insidious) for Blumhouse Productions. Whitehead has previously worked with composer Steve Jablonsky who has scored most of the films produced by Bay’s Platinum Dunes production company on various projects, inluding Universal’s Your Highness and Battleship, as well as ABC’s Desperate Housewives. The project marks the composer’s first major studio scoring assignment. Vigilandia is currently in post-production and is expected to be released in 2013 by Universal Pictures.
