Nicolas Jaar to score US remake of 'The Returned'

First series of French series had music by Mogwai

Nicolas Jaar to score US remake of 'The Returned'

Producer Nicolas Jaar has been recruited to provide the music on a US remake of The Returned.

The zombie-drama, known as Les Revenants in its native France, was a big hit when imported to Britain in 2013 by Channel 4. Mogwai provided the music for the original series and claimed to be interested in working on the US remake for the A&E network.

However, they have instead gone for Jaar; best known for his 2011 album 'Space Is Only Noise' and recent work alongside Dave Harrington as Darkside. Jaar will score all 10 episodes of the first season of The Returned. The show is in its early stages but will be produced by Carlton Cuse (Lost/ Bates Motel) and Raelle Tucker (True Blood).

Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Michelle Forbes, Mark Pellegrino and Sophie Lowe have already been cast in the series.

Mogwai will return to Les Revenants for its second series, it has been confirmed by Stuart Braithwaite of the band.
