Tyler Bates & Tim Williams to Score Ti West’s X Movie Sequel, PEARL
PEARL is an upcoming American slasher film serving as a prequel to the horror film X (2022). The film is directed by Ti West, and co-written by West and Mia Goth, who reprises her role as Pearl from the previous film. The supporting cast includes David Corenswet, Tandi Wright, Matthew Sunderland, and Emma Jenkins-Purro. PEARL is a co-production of A24 and Little Lamb Productions, and serves as an origin story for the titular villain.
Tyler Bates, who scored X with recording artist Chelsea Wolfe, joins with composer Tim Williams (BRIGHTBURN, FINAL FREQUENCY, WE SUMMON THE DARKNESS) to co-score PEARL.
The film will have its world premiere at the 79th Venice International Film Festival in September 2022, and is scheduled to be released in the United States on September 16, 2022.
