Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood will score the new thriller by Lynne Ramsay, You Were Never Really Here, starring Joaquin Phoenix.
The film will premier at Cannes Film festival and is an adaptation of a novel of the same name by Jonathan Ames. It follows the story of a war veteran’s attempt to save a young girl from a sex trafficking ring.
Greenwood and Ramsay have a history of collaborations. The filmmaker recently directed two Radiohead videos, as well as a documentary on Greenwood’s side project Junun, with musician Shye Ben-Tzur. It is rumoured that the Radiohead guitarist is currently working on the soundtrack for another of Ramsay’s films which will star Daniel Day-Lewis.
Greenwood has also scored two Paul Thomas Anderson films starring Joaquin Phoenix, The Master and Inherent Vice.
