HACKSAW RIDGE is based on the true story of small town boy turned army medic Desmond Doss (played by Andrew Garfield) who, in the battle of Okinawa during World War II, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. A "conscientious objector," Doss fought on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. The film, which also stars Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths and Vince Vaughn, was directed by Mel Gibson, with an adapted screenplay by Robert Schenkkan and Andrew Knight. A Summit Entertainment release. Rated R for intense prolonged realistically graphic sequences of war violence, including grisly bloody images.

The Society of Composers and Lyricists Seminar: Hacksaw Ridge - Rupert Gregson-Williams Rupert Gregson-Williams was born in England and educated at St. John’s College Choir School, Cambridge. The multi-award winning composer works from his studios in both London and Los Angeles. A truly versatile composer, Rupert has written a wide range of scores for many feature films, including the Oscar-winning Hotel Rwanda for which he was awarded the European Film Award for Best Composer, the blockbuster DreamWorks animated films Over The Hedge and Jerry Seinfeld’s Bee Movie, for which Rupert was nominated for an Annie Award for his original score and the independent BBC Films’ Love + Hate, for which he was awarded the Reims International Composer Award.

Most recently, Rupert scored the international hit The Legend of Tarzan, starring Alexander Skarsgård and Margot Robbie and directed by David Yates. Upcoming projects for Gregson-Williams include Hacksaw Ridge, starring Andrew Garfield and directed by Mel Gibson, which premiered at the Venice International Film Festival this Fall and opens nationwide on November 4. For television, Rupert is scoring the original Netflix series, The Crown created by Peter Morgan which premieres on Netflix on November 4. Other film credits include Winter’s Tale directed by Akiva Goldsman, Zookeeper starring Kevin James, Made of Honor starring Patrick Dempsey and Thunderpants starring Stephen Fry.

Gregson-Williams has had a long association with Adam Sandler and has composed the scores for many of his films over the past ten years, including Click, Bedtime Stories, Grown Ups, Just Go With It, Here Comes The Boom, The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over.

Rupert has composed the music for various TV projects, including the Emmy-award winning HBO series Veep, AMC’s The Prisoner, and Sky Vision’s Agatha Raisin. He received an Emmy nomination for the 2002 telefilm “Jack and the Beanstalk: The Real Story” for Outstanding Music Composition for a Miniseries, Movie or a Special (Dramatic Underscore).
