Tyler Bates is scoring the Fast & Furious spin off movie.   http://filmmusicreporter.com/2019/05/15/tyler-bates-to-score-david-leitchs-hobbs-shaw/   The creation of the Brian T

Ha, ha! That's a laugh! Balfe "composing". Next you'll be telling me that Johnson has been elect- oh, shit!

I think he should just let the cat write the score. I mean, cats can write some bad-ass sad-death music when they feel truly inspired:    

Randy Newman has scored the upcoming Noah Baumbach film The Meyerowitz Stories.

The movie is based on Brian Selznick’s novel of the same title and revolves around two adult siblings contending with the influence of their aging father. 

 

This may not be notable for most people, but as a huge R. Newman fan I'm pretty interested.  It's the first non-animated film he's scored in many many years.  Doesn't sound like the kind of film that will have a lot in the way of score, but hopefully there's a nice end credits suite or something.

 

It's funny, just yesterday I watched a 2014 interview with Newman on Youtube with this exchange:

 

Quote

Interviewer: Any upcoming projects? ...... a film score?

 

Newman: I don't know, I just hope it's not another cartoon, you know, I'm tired [of them]

:D

Can't wait for Cars 3!

 

Here's exactly what he said.  I love the part about wanting to score "Meryl Streep looking up for two minutes" or "someone floating around in space."

 

 

As always, most everything Randy says comes through about 5 layers of irony.

According to this FSM poster, Christopher Young will not be scoring The Monkey King 3

This ended up being true. The Monkey King 3 is getting a score by Yu Kobayashi.

 

Shame (yet again today). I really liked his two scores (especially the second one).

If he wanted to do it and M. Night had budget issues, he'd likely lower his fee for a friend - loads of composers have done that.

 

He's got The Nutcracker and Fantastic Beasts 2 on his plate right now. As with Snicket, I'm still going with him not having the schedule for it.

 

But I'm just looking for nice reasons why he hasn't done these projects :) Maybe he did just not want to do them...

How strange that discussion and rumors are circulating of Meryl Streep replacing Carrie Fisher in the next Star Wars film! Randy missed his opportunity!

Somehow the detail that John Carpenter himself is scoring the new Halloween movie slipped by me before now.

 

Very cool!  His first Halloween score since Season of the Witch and his first without Alan Howarth since the first movie.

I could have sworn I saw somewhere that he was co-composing with someone but can’t find it now. It’ll be interesting to see if he does more than just regurgitate the theme.

Oh im expecting it to be that pretty much.  But there could be a cool new version.  Or maybe an update of Laurie’s classic theme to reflect who she is now.

Press release and tease for John Carpenter’s Halloween score.  Not much of a tease but what the hey

 

Quote

The new soundtrack pays homage to the classic Halloween score that Carpenter composed and recorded in 1978, when he forever changed the course of horror cinema and synthesizer music with his low-budget masterpiece. Several new versions of the iconic main theme serve as the pulse of Green's film, its familiar 5/4 refrain stabbing through the soundtrack like the Shape's knife. The rest of the soundtrack is just as enthralling, incorporating everything from atmospheric synth whooshes to eerie piano-driven pieces to skittering electronic percussion. While the new score was made with a few more resources than Carpenter's famously shoestring original, its musical spirit was preserved."

 

 

The original is the only soundtrack I love that includes film audio.  I think because the music is so simplistic it just works better with the dialogue included

I was looking for a thread about the Mulan remake, but can't seem to find it.

Does it really not exist? Oh well, I'll misuse this one then...

 

The composer for the new version was announced:

Consider me excited! HGW is no Jerry Goldsmith, but at his best, he can be pretty darn good.

I hope he brings out his Sinbad level of inspiration.
