Lucas Vidal to Score ‘The Quiet Ones”
Lucas Vidal has signed on to score the upcoming supernatural horror thriller, The Quiet Ones. The Hammer Films production is directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2) and stars Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman) and Jared Harris (Mad Men, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button). The film follows a University professor who uses controversial methods and leads his students to take part in creating a Poltergeist from negative human energy. James Gay-Rees (Senna) and Steven Chester Prince are also producing. The thriller marks Hammer Film’s and producer Simon Oakes’ first film to go into production following this year’s Daniel Radcliffe-starring box office hit The Woman in Black, which has become the highest grossing British horror film of the last 20 years. The project’s screenplay is written by Tom De Ville with revisions by Craig Rosenberg (After the Sunset, The Uninvited), Oren Moverman (The Messsenger, Rampart) and Pogue. The Quiet Ones is set to begin production this month and a release in 2013 is expected.
