Cliff Martinez Re-teams with 'Drive' Director Nicolas Winding Refn to Score 'The Neon Demon'
Published Nov 04, 2014Cliff Martinez certainly seems to be in high demand these days. We just heard about the pile of projects that the composer has on the go, and now we've caught wind of yet another impending film score.
This latest project brings Martinez back together with director Nicolas Winding Refn for the impending horror flick The Neon Demon. Why is this particularly exciting? Well, Martinez has scored a couple of the Danish-born filmmaker past movies, most notably 2011's celebrated Drive.
The Neon Demon only just got announced, so details are currently scarce, but it's set to shoot in Los Angeles with a projected 2016 release.
"One morning I woke and realized I was both surrounded and dominated by women," Refn said in a press release. "Strangely, a sudden urge was planted in me to make a horror film about vicious beauty. After making Drive and falling madly in love with the electricity of Los Angeles, I knew I had to return to tell the story of The Neon Demon."
Meanwhile, Martinez's Far Cry 4 score came out digitally today (November 4). Hear a sampler from that soundtrack below. A double-CD version will follow on December 2 in North America and a triple-vinyl version will arrive in January. The game will be out on November 18.
As previously reported, he's also scoring the film Beasts of No Nation for True Detective director Cary Fukunaga, and is expected to return for season two of Steven Soderbergh's Cinemax period drama The Knick, whose first season soundtrack is coming to vinyl on December 23 through Milan Records.
