Howard Shore Scores Gothic Horror Mystery Film THE PALE BLUE EYE
Edgar Allen Poe: Down, down, down came the hot thrashing flurry. Darkest night, black with hell-charneled fury. Leaving only that deathly pale blue eye.
THE PALE BLUE EYE is a forthcoming gothic horror mystery film written and directed by Scott Cooper (OUT OF THE FURNACE, BLACK MASS, HOSTILES, ANTLERS), adapted from the 2003 novel of the same name by Louis Bayard. In 1830, world-weary veteran detective Augustus Landor investigates a series of murders at the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York. Stymied by the cadets’ code of silence, he enlists one of their own to help unravel the case – a young man the world would come to know as Edgar Allan Poe. Christian Bale (Landor) and Harry Melling (Poe) lead an ensemble cast that includes Gillian Anderson, Lucy Boynton, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Toby Jones, Harry Lawtey, Simon McBurney, Timothy Spall, and Robert Duvall.
Howard Shore (CRIMES OF THE FUTURE, THE LORD OF THE RINGS, THE HOBBIT, THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, HUGO, THE CELL, DOGMA) has composed the original music for the picture.
THE PALE BLUE EYE is scheduled to be released in select theaters on December 23, 2022, before its streaming release on January 6, 2023, on Netflix.
