10-cloverfield-laneBear McCreary has composed the music for the upcoming sci-fi mystery thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane. The film is directed by Dan Trachtenberg and stars John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr. The movie is said to be related to Matt Reeves’ 2008 feature Cloverfield and follows a young woman who wakes up in a stranger’s basement after a car accident and is told her life was saved from a chemical attack that has left the outside uninhabitable. J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force AwakensStar TrekSuper 8) is producing the project through his Bad Robots company with Lindsey Weber. Josh Campbell (4 Minute Mile) & Matt Stuecken have written the screenplay with Damien Chazelle (Whiplash). 10 Cloverfield Lane will be released on March 11, 2016 by Paramount Pictures. Visit the official movie website for more information.

McCreary’s recent feature projects include The Forest, as well as The Boy, which is opening in theaters this weekend. The composer’s current TV scoring projects include The Walking Dead, Outlander, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and A&E’s upcoming Damien.

    So it’ll likely have more music than the first one.

    Soooo freakin excited about this news. Congrats on landing this gig, Bear! I can’t wait to see and hear this movie.

    Yeah, great job to Bear McCreary. But, considering it’s a JJ Abrams film, I was hoping for an awesome new Giacchino score.

  4. ghostmcdaid says:

    @liamdude5 It’s not a Abrams film. He is just producing it. Like the new MI films. It’s being directed by Dan Trachtenberg. Besides Giacchino will be busy with the new Star Trek film.

    You guys know that this is a low-budgtet suspense film, right? So, it’s more likely we’ll get a moody and tense synth-based score, more in line with Bear’s The Walking Dead than his more “epic” scores.
