Warner Brothers Pictures Release March 30
(HOLLYWOOD, CA)- Composer John Frizzell scores the upcoming supernatural thriller release “The Reaping.” The film, starring Hilary Swank, is directed by Stephen Hopkins and produced by Joel Silver. Frizzell has previously worked with producer Joel Silver on such films as “13 Ghosts”, “Ghost Ship,” and “Cradle 2 The Grave.” Warner Brothers Pictures is set to release the film March 30.
In the film, Hilary Swank plays a former Christian missionary who lost her faith after her family was tragically killed, and has since become a world renowned expert in disproving religious phenomena. But when she investigates a small Louisiana town that is suffering from what appear to be the Biblical plagues, she realizes that science cannot explain what is happening and she must regain her faith to combat the dark forces threatening the community.
For his most recent release, “Primeval,” Frizzell spent weeks submerged in the world of African music, listening to over 20 hours of traditional recordings and mining vintage Smithsonian film footage in order to gain a holistic understanding of the art form.
Frizzell has written scores for a variety of genres and has proven his musical talent, creativity and versatility. For “The Prizewinner of Defiance, Ohio,” starring Julianne Moore, Frizzell recruited Newgrass band Nickel Creek to play on his Americana score. John Frizzell’s other credits range from comedies such as “Beavis and Butthead Do America” and the cult classic “Office Space,” to the dark comedy “Teaching Mrs. Tingle” and the sci-fi drama “Alien Resurrection.” Recent credits include “Gods and Generals,” and “First Born,” starring Elisabeth Shue.
