Adapted from Malorie Blackman’s highly successful dystopian novel series ‘Noughts & Crosses’, the series depicts an alternate world in which races are segregated into the black ruling class (Crosses) and the white underclass (Noughts). The two protagonists star as Masali Baduza (as Sephy) and Peaky Blinders’ Jack Rowan (Callum). Rapper Stormzy also stars as newspaper editor Kolawale.
Malorie Blackman stated that: “I am beyond thrilled that Noughts and Crosses will be dramatized by the BBC – it couldn’t have found a better home”.
Matthew Herbert’s work for film includes scoring A Fantastic Woman, a feature film from Chile starring Daniela Vega, as a young trans woman whose life is turned upside down when her older cis lover dies in ambiguous circumstances. The film was awarded both a Golden Globe and an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film 2018. Other work includes Disobedience (2017); Director Sebastian Lielo’s follow-up to A Fantastic Woman, starring Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams.
Most recently Matthew scored Gloria Bell, a comedy-drama featuring Julianne Moore, released in 2019, as well as Oscar-nominated National Geographic documentary film, ‘The Cave’ (dir. Feras Feyyad).
