London: "Gone Girl" composer Atticus Ross will provide the chilling music for Robert Kirkman's new horror series "Outcast".

The composer makes his television debut with the project, after previously working on high profile films like "The Social Network", "Gone Girl" and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo", reported Digital Spy.

Based on Kirkman and Paul Azaceta's comic of the same name, "Outcast" follows Kyle Barnes (Patrick Fugit), a young man who has been plagued by demonic possession all of his life.

With the help of a preacher named Reverend Anderson (Philip Glenister), Kyle embarks on a journey to find answers and regain the normal life he lost.

Kirkman said: "Who can't recall the shrieking violins in the 'Psycho' shower scene or the repetitious two-notes that play before a shark attack in 'Jaws'?

"A haunting and epic score is critical in the telling of horror on any screen, and we're privileged to have Atticus on board to help illustrate Kyle Barnes's story."

Ross added: "I'm excited to be working with Robert Kirkman and the whole 'Outcast' team. Hopefully we'll be able provide sonic justice for Robert's depraved and brilliant vision."
