According to Pitchfork, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, members of the Bad Seeds and composers behind the music of films like Hell Or High Water and The Road, have already written their next score. The duo’s music will appear in War Machine, Netflix’s upcoming adaptation of Michael Hasting’s book The Operators: The Wild & Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War. Directed and written by Animal Kingdoms David Michôd, the film stars Brad Pitt as a thinly fictionalized version of former General Stanley McChrystal, the controversial commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan who was ousted after Hasting’s reporting revealed the friction between his camp and that of then-president Barack Obama. War Machine’s Netflix premiere is set for May 26, and the film also stars Ben Kingsley, Tilda Swinton, Topher Grace, and Anthony Michael Hall, among others.
