Published Nov 30, 2017Earlier this year, we learned that the filmmaking team behind Canadian cult hit Turbo Kid would be returning with a new project called Summer of '84. Now the film has officially secured its premiere at the newly announced Sundance Film Festival, and Turbo Kid soundtrackers Le Matos have revealed they have penned the accompanying score to the film.
Le Matos confirmed the news today (November 30) on their Instagram page, posting the following:
As previously reported, the Canadian directing team of François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell are behind Summer of '84, which stars Graham Verchere, Judah Lewis, Caleb Emery, Cory Grüter-Andrew, Tiera Skovbye and Rich Sommer.
The film was written by Matt Leslie and Stephen J. Smith, with the latter previously saying, "Summer of '84 taps into the curiosity we all had as kids about what goes on behind closed doors."
The Sundance description for the film reads as follows: "Summer, 1984: a perfect time to be a carefree 15-year-old. But when neighborhood conspiracy theorist Davey Armstrong begins to suspect his police officer neighbor might be the serial killer all over the local news, he and his three best friends begin an investigation that soon turns dangerous."
While so far there is no word on when Le Matos' soundtrack for the movie could see release, it will come in the wake of their last proper album, 2015's Chronicles of the Wasteland, which arrived as a double-album release with their Turbo Kid soundtrack.
