Nick Cave, Warren Ellis score West Memphis Three documentary

While Nick Cave and Warren Ellis recently disbanded Grinderman in favor of a new Bad Seeds album, the pair has also added a new project to their increasingly long catalog of film scores. With Cave already attached to a 3D adaptation of Pinocchio, TwentyFourBit now reports that both he and Ellis have provided music for West of Memphis, a new documentary about the West Memphis Three.

Directed and written by Amy Berg, and co-produced and co-written by Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings), the film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last week. Additional screenings have yet to be announced; in the meantime, check out the film’s trailer below.
