Guillermo Arriaga, Emir Kusturica, Bahman Ghobadi & More To Helm Shorts In 'Words Of Gods,' Peter Gabriel Scoring

The Playlist By Cain Rodriguez | The Playlist July 1, 2013 at 11:36AM

The past few years have seen many musicians trying their hand at scoring movies -- Daft Punk, Trent Reznor and Jonny Greenwood, among others -- but it’s a trend that extends past the current crop of critically-acclaimed musician-turned-film-composers. In 1988, Peter Gabriel provided the score for Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of the controversial “The Last Temptation Of Christ” -- it was his second score after the little-seen “Birdy” -- and now it looks like the Genesis founding member is going back to the world of religion for his next scoring gig.

The past few years have seen many musicians trying their hand at scoring movies -- Daft Punk, Trent Reznor and Jonny Greenwood, among others -- but it’s a trend that extends past the current crop of critically-acclaimed musician-turned-film-composers. In 1988, Peter Gabriel provided the score for Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of the controversial “The Last Temptation Of Christ” -- it was his second score after the little-seen “Birdy” -- and now it looks like the Genesis founding member is going back to the world of religion for his next scoring gig.

THR is reporting that Gabriel will compose the score for the religious-themed anthology film “Words of Gods.” Produced by Alex Garcia and Guillermo Arriaga, the film will feature nine different segments directed by names like Bahman Ghobadi (“Turtles Can Fly,” "No One Knows About Persian Cats"), Emir Kusturica (“Underground”), Hideo Nakata (“Dark Water”) and Arriaga himself. Each segment deals with “important organized religions around the world.”

Gabriel’s last foray into the cinematic world was the Oscar-nominated (and Grammy award-winning) track “Down to Earth” for Pixar’s “Wall-E.” His cover of Arcade Fire’s “My Body Is A Cage” also scored one of the first “John Carter” trailers. That last dud aside, the film world has been good for Gabriel so we hope that “Words of Gods” continues the trend. At the very least there’ll be at least ninety more minutes of new music from Gabriel. In the meantime you can listen to one of Gabriel’s tracks for “The Last Temptation Of Christ” below along with the “Wall-E” track. [THR]
