Tyler Bates (Guardians of the Galaxy, Watchmen, Deadpool 2, 300John WickThe Punisher) and Timothy Williams (BrightburnFinding YouWalking with the EnemyWild Horses) have teamed up to score the upcoming X prequel Pearl. The film is written and directed by Ti West (In a Valley of Violence, The House of the Devil) and stars Mia Goth who reprises her role as Pearl from the director’s feature X, which was released earlier this year. The horror movie is set during World War I and will explore the origins of Pearl with Goth playing a younger version of the character. Kevin Turen (Euphoria, Arbitrage, Waves), Jacob Jaffke and Harrison Kreiss return as producers of the A24 production. Bates has previously co-scored West’s X with Chelsea Wolfe and also collaborated with the director on 2013’s The Sacrament. No release date has been announced yet for Pearl.

Bates also continues to co-score Adult Swim’s Primal, which will return for its second season this summer. Williams’ other upcoming projects include Lindsay MacKay’s The Swearing Jar, Erik Bloomquist’s horror movie She Came from the Woods, Marny Eng’s & E.J. Foerster’s Gringa and Jeffrey A. Smith’s Southern Gospel.
