Faith No More’s Mike Patton to Score Stephen King’s 1922

Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr Bungle, Dead Cross) will be scoring the Netflix adaptation of Stephen King’s novella 1922. The story is about a man who confesses to murdering his wife and later believes she is haunting him. Zak Hilditch (Transmission, These Final Hours) wrote the screenplay and is set to direct the movie. In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Patton described the music as “more haunting and Hitchcock-y than you might think.”

No release date has been set for 1922, but it is currently in post-production with plans for a 2017 release. The movie will star Thomas Jane (Hung) and Molly Parker (House of Cards).
