The Playlist reports Brian Eno is writing music for Peter Jackson’s film adaptation of “The Lovely Bones,” set to be released next December. Eno’s sometimes ambient, experimental, and abstract style of composition could suit the movie’s scenes that take place in the afterlife.
The novel, by Alice Sebold, is narrated from the perspective of a girl who’s been murdered. This unique point of view requires a score that’s left of the mainstream and surely a bombastic John Williams score wouldn’t fit.
Brian Eno has become a living legend in music, with a resume of collaborators including David Bowie, Talking Heads, and most recently U2. You can check out his latest collaboration with David Byrne here.
With an all-star cast of Rachel Weisz, Mark Wahlberg, and Susan Surandon, an oscar-winning director, and now a musical legend behind the music, this best-selling book adaptation is as close to a surefire Oscar hit as it gets.
