Composer Matthew Herbert (The Beast Must Die, The Cave, The Responder, Port AuthorityTemple) is reuniting with director Sebastián Lelio on the upcoming Netflix original film The Wonder. The movie is based on the novel of the same name by Emma Donoghue and stars Florence Pugh, Tom Burke, Niamh Algar, Elaine Cassidy, Toby Jones, Kíla Lord Cassidy, Dermot Crowley, Brían F. O’Byrne and Ciaran Hinds. The psychological thriller is set in the Irish Midlands in 1862 and revolves around an 11-year old girl who stops eating but remains miraculously alive and well and an English nurse who is brought to her tiny village to observe. Lelio also wrote the screenplay with Donoghue and Alice Birch (Lady Macbeth). Tessa Ross & Juliette Howell (Life After Life, Trigonometry) are producing the project for House Productions, alongside Ed Guiney (The Favourite, Room) and Andrew Lowe (Normal People, Frank) for Element Pictures. Herbert has previously collaborated with Lelio on his last three features, A Fantastic Woman, Disobedience and Gloria Bell. The Wonder is expected to premiere later this year.

Herbert has also recently scored the second season of Noughts + Crosses, which premiered in the UK this spring on BBC and is currently awaiting a domestic premiere date.
