I want an X Files season 12. I loved the new seasons, and it's simply annoying that they would resurrect the series because the original series didn't end in a satisfactory way, and then it ended opened ended AGAIN

Snow did the 2008 X-Files movie about a paedophilic priest, or something. I remember it came out right when I was watching obsessively the DVD box sets of the old show, so I was as much an excer as it could be six years after the show ended.

I don't remember much about that movie, it's kind of a black sheep in amidst the X-Files history. Fans don't care, creators pretend it never happened...

 

Years waiting to find out what happened after the 2002 finale and they give us a weird movie about a priest in prison for child abuse...

So what's the deal here? Did they make a whole score that was rejected, or did they only ever make a few pieces? Either way, not sure if this should intrude on my potential excitement, since Snow doing this film does peak my interest in spite of not being familiar with him.

Suppose they're rather lucky that they at least made it to the film partially, unlike Romer.

This statement reflects Argento’s desire to work with Daft Punk, however there has been no agreement nor discussions between both parties.

 

So it's not exactly out of the question, but it isn't a guarantee either.

 

Either way, I'll be super excited if it actually comes to fruition. It's been 7 years since RAM released and 10 since TL, so I've been aching for some new pure DP material. Being that this is Argento we're talking about, it seems very likely to me that this will be closer to their regular work than TRON. It's always possible they can bring back Trapanese and others, but a project like what's being described doesn't sound like it'd need the full orchestral treatment. Especially being these are guys that never like repeating past successes 100%. Let's just see what happens.

Mark Isham Scoring HBO’s ‘The Nevers’

Mark Isham (Crash, Once Upon a Time, A River Runs Through It, Miracle, Warrior, The Accountant) is the composer of the new HBO original series The Nevers. The show is created by Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Marvel’s The Avengers) and stars Laura Donnelly, Ann Skelly, Olivia Williams, James Norton, Tom Riley, Rochelle Neil, Eleanor Tomlinson, Amy Manson, Pip Torrens, Denis O’Hare, Zackary Momoh, Elizabeth Berrington, Kiran Sonia Sawar, Anna Devlin, Viola Prettejohn, Ella Smith, Nick Frost and Ben Chaplin. The sci-fi drama is set in the late 19th Century, when Victorian London is rocked to its foundations by a supernatural event which gives certain people – mostly women – abnormal abilities, from the wondrous to the disturbing. Whedon also serves as an executive producer on the the Mutant Enemy production, alongside Bernadette Caulfield (Game of Thrones), Ilene S. Landress (The Sopranos, Girls), Doug Petrie (Daredevil, The Defenders), Jane Espenson (Caprica) and showrunner Philippa Goslett (Mary Magdalene).

Ridley Scott dumps Marc Streitenfeld for... Daniel Pemberton? :blink:

 

Yeah, who is Daniel Pemberton?

 

Looking back at this thread, 2013 was such a rollercoaster of rejected scores. Thor: The Dark World (Burwell), 300: Rise of an Empire (Jusid), Ender's Game (Horner), Romeo and Juliet (Horner), Zimmer taking over Spider-Man, Jackman taking over Captain America (still one of the dumbest decisions ever).

Those films probably deserve the composers they got.

No big loss as I will never see either one.

Warner Bros is probably going to put Zimmer or one of his clones on Godzilla.

 

This sadly aged well.

Letting go JW from HP was even dumber but yeah losing Silvestri was certainly not very clever

 

Well at least I like all of the Harry Potter scores. IDK if I would trade JW for Doyle's work.

I wasn't too bothered about John's departure. He wrote three great scores - I was happy to see alternative takes on it musically... in the same way that the tone changed gradually throughout the series.

Brian Tyler to Score Scream 5

 

No Wes Craven, no Beltrami?


I wonder if he was even asked? Too bad he couldn't continue with the series, but maybe his heart wasn’t in it anymore with Craven gone.

Yea maybe Beltrami wasn't even asked, who knows

 

I guess the director directed some movie called Ready or Not that Tyler scored

Poor Desplat has been expelled of a lot of interesting projects lately. First Black Widow, now this... 

 

I really want to know what made Del Toro to think Johnson is a better choice for the movie than Desplat.

Well if the article is to be believed, it's a situation where they needed to do it in France for whatever reason and Del Toro was unable. And that Desplat is still attached to Del Toro's Pinocchio movie (I believe he's already written songs for it?)

Perhaps he listened to Knives Out which was quite good and thought that his movie would perfectly suit Johnson

The Nolan/Zimmer love story has come to an end. Now he has a new partner: Ludwig Göransson.

I wasn't impressed with his Tenet score though.
