THE KING’S DAUGHTER Fantasy Adventure Soundtrack Releases Tomorrow
Gravitas Ventures releases tomorrow THE KING’S DAUGHTER, an action-adventure fantasy film directed by Sean McNamara from a screenplay by Barry Berman and James Schamus. It is based on the 1997 novel The Moon and the Sun by Vonda N. McIntyre, which is about what happens when French King Louis XIV’s quest for immortality leads him to capture and steal a mermaid’s life force, a move that is further complicated by his illegitimate daughter’s discovery of the creature. The film stars Pierce Brosnan as Louis XIV, Kaya Scodelario as Marie-Josèphe, and Benjamin Walker as Yves De La Croix.
The film’s original music, performed by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir, is a combined effort by composers Joseph Metcalfe (lead composer; SLEEPING BEAUTY, APOCALYPSE POMPEII, BRUTAL, ATTILA), John Coda (CATS & DOGS 3: PAWS UNITE, ORPHAN HORSE, MONSTER MAN) & Grant Kirkhope (WORLD OF WARCRAFT: SHADOWLANDS, THE HANDLER, MINDCRAFT DUNGEONS: HIDDEN DEPTHS). A track (“Minuet”), written by Academy Award nominee Nicholas Britell (CRUELLA, SUCCESSION, DON’T LOOK UP, MOONLIGHT), is featured in the film and is on the album as well.
A soundtrack album will be released tomorrow, coinciding with the film’s premiere. For the full track listing, see filmmusicreporter.
