Huh. An trite electronic beat in the first half, with a segment from Science and Religion in the second half? I assume the rest of the score will rise above those constraints...ggctuk has also commented on TASM 2. And yes, as Edmund said, you make good posts! Please don't feel chased out. :P<br><br>I do wonder what Zimmer would do with the project if he were asked and said yes. He already scored to Batmans, so I doubt he'd feel that objection to it. But if Debney scored it, we're almost guaranteed that references to the original will be made throughout.I guess if Disney can bring Alan Menken back for the live action version of Beauty and the Beast, they could certainly bring Hans back for The Lion KingDid anyone ever actually reject the idea that more than one person can work on a cue?Hey, man, no need to get so touchy. I for one appreciate your posts (and I don't really see anyone saying otherwise). But you have to admit it is kind of funny how you only ever seem to comment on a few things (and yeah, Lion King about 80% of the time - in fact, the only other score I can recall you ever commenting on is Terminator Genisys).<br><br>Debney seems likely for this, since Jungle Book was very well-received (both film and score) and the Favreau connection. But you know who would be a fantastic choice? MARK MANCINA! Disney experience, check. Got the chops for it, check. Worked on the friggin' original and would know exactly where and when to use elements from it in the remake, check. You can't go wrong!
Silence and Religion <3This might come as a shock to you, but Hans Zimmer is not exactly my favourite composer and I have not watched many movies with his work in it (in truth, only two or three where I enjoyed the music). As far as scores go, The Lion King is on my top 10, but not in my top 5. My all-time favourite composer is John Williams. Michael Giacchino and Jery Goldsmith are next on my list, followed by James Horner, Alan Silvestri, Danny Elfman... Zimmer's quite low on the list.<br><br>As far as scores go, my favourite all-time scores are Star Wars by John Williams and Star Trek by Goldsmith and Giacchino. But as they're not RCP composers, there's no place to talk about their works on this site. I could write tons more on those scores than I ever could write on anything Zimmer related, and that includes this score.<br><br>Since obviously anything I write is considered a NUISANCE to you fine, upstanding folks, I think I shall just not bother with this site any more. Because how dare I participate in any discussions on the few Zimmer scores I actually like, right?<br><br>Good day, sir.Titanic is a love story in a setting of a tragic event. i havent seen Deepwater Horizon yet, but im 99% sure that there is no love story on that oil platform. Schindler's List is a bit too sentimental for my taste. btw: comparing 2 movies with the setting in 1912 and WW II with a movie and its setting in 2010 is absolutely sensless.And are you forced to jump on everything TLK related, even on something Hans will probably not score ? :PYou guys really need to make a proper forum so we can edit our own posts instead of bumping.<br><br>I stand corrected on the Debney thing: he's kind of Favreau's go-to guy (he scored 4 of Favreau's 8 films). Still doesn't make it ironclad that Debney will be the composer.
Why does it seem that everybody expects Debney to do it if Zimmer doesn't? I know he did well with The Jungle Book, but consider this: Debney has ONLY done The Jungle Book in this line of movies. The reason they went for Debney is most likely to do with the fact they couldn't get hold of the original composer. Which, seeing as that was George Bruns, is on account of the fact that he died 33 years ago. James Newton Howard did Maleficent and Cinderella was done by Patrick Doyle. <br><br>Given they got Alan Menken to do Beauty And The Beast (and is likely to be asked when they get around to The Little Mermaid and Aladdin), I would imagine they WILL be approaching Hans Zimmer, Mark Mancina, Lebo M and the whole team to do a new version.<br><br>Failing that, Michael Giacchino is Disney's current composer golden-boy at the moment, so he's a possibility too. There's a whole load of composers who could do it that I'm too lazy to list given I've actually listed several already.Above on this very page... :PCan we listen to this cue "7m44c Final Battle Pt 3" somewhere?Yeah it's interesting, I will try to add more notes from the various collaborators or Hans on his scores. Did the same with Last Samurai...Hans has to be the person who gets to decline the gig if he wants to.  His arrangement of the Circle of Life with Lebo M was the hook that got you into the movie.
If not Zimmer than it'll probably be John Debney who'll score this one.@MrZimmerFan and rockhound<br><br>So what you are saying is that Horner scored Titanic in wrong way? And Williams also got it wrong with Schindler's List?Would be very interesting if Hans Zimmer scored this. He's said numerous times that the score for the animated film could have been far better had he had more time to work on it. This could be the opportunity for him to put those final touches upon this gem of a score. Hey, I for one will welcome it even if turns out to be a note-by-note re-recording of the original, too - as long as the essences of the original is maintained, of courseYou can bet if they DON'T go for Zimmer, they might go for somebody like Michael Giacchino, especially given how much he's already done for Disney so far (quite a few Pixar scores under his belt, his Zootopia score, which is great, BTW. I'd definitely buy an expanded version, plus Doctor Strange and Rogue One to name a few he's done for Disney). Either way, they'll most likely be reprising all of Zimmer's themes.<br><br>Certainly an interesting development that pretty much everybody called after the success of The Jungle Book.<br><br>And BTW, the film is going to be all-CG, so it definitely won't be 'live action'.So we have a detailed discussion of how a cue on a HZ score comes together. Will people finally accept the idea that two composers can work on the same cue. <br><br>Maybe then we can work on getting people to understand that a credited additional arranger isn't a "ghostwriter".

Composer Zimmer Talks Sherlock Holmes, Inception, Dark Knight, It’s Complicated



In many ways, the best thing about Sherlock Holmes is its score (released January 12), featuring exotic Hungarian and gypsy instruments. It’s one of about a hundred movie scores delivered by prolific German composer Hans Zimmer, who has earned six Oscar nominations; he won for The Lion King in 1994.

Articulate and charming, Zimmer invited me to his lair in Santa Monica, a sprawling complex housing other composers as well as rooms crammed with synthesizers, computers and towers of servers. He’s currently working on Inception for Chris Nolan, for whom he composed the score for The Dark Knight. He gave me a tour, showed me where and how he composes and explained his working process on the scores for Sherlock Holmes, It’s Complicated, Gladiator, and The Dark Knight. He even plays a bit.

Hans Zimmer, Academy Award Press Statement

Conan Doyle realized that a successful lead character needs to play the fiddle. I wish all filmmakers did. It makes writing the score so much easier. With Guy's great encouragement we took the orchestra out of the lofty spheres of the concert hall and brought them back to the pub, where they seem right at home. After all, There is no human emotion that has not - at one time or other - been profoundly expressed in a pub, and I'm so grateful that my peers at the Academy have recognized that. This is the year where we pit the humble banjo against the might of the orchestra.

Hans Zimmer
