We already have The Official Future Films Thread to discuss the films themselves, and the Upcoming Soundtracks thread to discuss CD announcements of scores, but we don't really have a place to discuss scoring assignments, so here we go!

Two recent ones I read about:

Patrick Doyle will be scoring Pixar's Brave (source)

and

Paul Haslinger will be scoring the new Three Musketeers remake (source)


My questions is... Who the heck is Paul Haslinger??

He was a member of Tangerine Dream and did a couple of scores with them, and has aso worked with Graeme Revell. He was also the guy who rescored the Wolfman before Elfman's music was put back in the picture.
Repeat the JWFan pledge after me: 'I hereby recognise John Towner Williams' place in the world as the great composer there has ever been, and I therefore renounce the works of Rozsa, Korngold, Herrmann, Horner, Kamen, Giacchino (unless the prophecy is fulfilled and he becomes the heir to JTW) and Goldsmith, especially Goldsmith. I understand that if I ever refer to Jurassic Park as anything less than "a masterpiece sixty-five million years in the making" I will be resigned to living out my days at the Zimmershrine.'

I thought Paul Haslinger was better known. I like his score for Shoot 'Em Up. He's on the low end, most comparable to Tyler Bates and Brian Tyler, but occasionally he'll do something decent.

Y'know it's the stuff which is maybe less hooky and less hummable, but is great art." - Hans Zimmer

It appears he's not that well known or everyone has forgotten him since the Wolfman score fiasco.

So it appears Patrick Doyle has been replaced on the new APES movie by Trevor Rabin?


Unconfirmed, of course.

Is it somewhere buried in that thread? Coming from a FSM poster I wouldn't believe it ;)

Besides, Doyle was just interviewed about it and it'll be featured in next month's FSMO.

I reported that in the thread I linked to a few posts up.

No firm confirmation yet, but truthfully -- I'm not looking into it further right now, working on other things; maybe somebody will beat me to it.

But when confirmed, it will go on my Rejected Scores site, rest assured.

Technology has been more of a benefit to the filmmakers than composer. It's resulted in shorter time to compose the music, more music tossed in the 11th hour in favor of worse music as replacement, and the opportunity for technically inept people to exist alongside guys who have monstrous musicality.


Very true. And even if you have a good composer working on a film nowadays, the edit always changes and the music has a tendency to get chopped up in the final cut. Or else a classically-trained composer like Patrick Doyle is forced to adapt a certain sound for Thor (the movie not the user), and his voice is squashed completely.

But I don't think all film music is in decline. Some independent films and European films know what they're doing. MovieScore Media focuses on releasing such scores Hollywood tends to forget.



Yes Mikael's MSM label is superb and many of today's best film music comes from Spain, Portugal, Italy and Germany.

Australia too, Christopher Gordon in particular is very renowned in that neck of the woods and gaining more and more acclaim. Hopefully Hollywood will give him more opportunities sooner, rather than later.

Not all of Hollywood film music is uninspired and I'll have to correct you and Koray re "Thor". Patrick Doyle's voice has NOT been squashed for the score, it's very much prominent in many of the cues. Just because he decided to evolve and embrace a more percussive sound, it doesn't mean that the score isn't any good. i've been fortunate enough to hear the complete score and it is a seriously thrilling work. The contemporary and almost rock inspired / rhythmic sensibilities are worth noting, as is the strong melodic themes for Thor, Loki, Jane and Odin. The London Symphony Orchestra are also on top form and there's some tremendous, almost Wagnerian outbursts.

Marvel's chief (Kevin Freige, I think) is a huge fan of Patrick's music and the comments relating to patrick being forced to write in a certain way are simply not true. You can find out more about all of this when my interview with him goes live in tomorrow's Film Score Monthly Online (www.fsmonlinemag.com) plus hear full length cues from the Thor score, which should give everybody a better idea of Patrick's very worthy achievements.

Elfman's Men in Black 3D is his first threequel. Let's hope it's better than the second film.

Interesting that he's in negotiations to score The Hunger Games with T. Bone Burnett. Either way, it's gonna be a packed year for Elfman come next year and hopefully a productive one like last year.

That's good news - usually a composer jumps ship by this point in a franchise, so for him to have signed on again hopefully means the 3rd film has promise.

I saw bits of the second, but I remember it generally being not very interesting. I don't remember a note of the score.

I can't say I'm excited for MB III. They took their time making the 2nd one, I remember Barry Sonnenfeld, in interviews at the time, mentioning they weren't going to rush a sequel. Well "taking their time" resulted in a crap film. The film was so bad I don't even remember Elfman's score.

This one seems promising, but I think the script was rewritten by David Koepp. So who knows.

Probably one of the most underrated composers. I love his score for The Dancer Upstairs. A very underrated film too.
