According to his own words, Joe Kraemer will NOT come back - https://twitter.com/EzraEpicMusic/status/958770225176088577

That's crazy. There have been many great M:I scores, but someone could argue that Joe's was the best and I would not contend them. At least not vigorously.

Oh, that is SUCH a pity. His score was great and I was looking forward to his return.
The Mission: Impossible movie series has been fortune enough to have from very good to fantastic scores.
Let's hope this continues with whoever scores Fallout.

I would guess Brian Tyler will score M-I FALLOUT.
He did MUMMY for Cruise and maybe he's forged a 'relationship' with him.

It really is. Did McQuarrie have no say on this? I really feel sorry for Kraemer as I though the last MI film was his second chance to make it big yet he's worked on nothing of note since then. Cruise seems to forge relationships with composers quicker than women...

If there's one positive then at least it's not Giacchino...

I agree and Tyler will make the most musical earth shattering noise just like The Mummy......

I still haven't seen the fifth Mission Impossible, but I did really enjoy the score. The score fan in me is kind of bummed that we don't see a second go-round for Kraemer, especially since 1) his first one was really good, and 2) he deserves another high profile notch in his belt, as his music is pretty refreshing among the current slate of composers TBQH.

All the same, I really like the idea of the M:I films being fairly disconnected anthology movies with unique crews (De Palma->Woo->Abrams->Bird->McQuarriex2) and (Elfman->Zimmer->Giacchinox2->Kraemer). There's not really a lot inherently interesting or unique about Cruise's character, so part of the thrill of these movies for me has been seeing different people put their spin on it. I'm interested to see who gets picked up. The M:I series has seen all of its composers go big and broad, which a lot of franchises don't afford.

I agree, Kraemer's M:I score is fantastic. If you wanted to argue his or Elfman's score as being the best for the series, I wouldn't have an issue with either.

I bet this is that franchise it was hinted at yesterday that Brian Tyler is about to be announced on.

Could very well be Tyler, but love him or leave him Henry Jackman seems to turn up at times like this, very often jumping onboard big projects like these (i.e. Captain America, Jumanji, Kong, and he also took over for Kraemer in another Cruise series -- Jack Reacher -- although with less-than-desirable results).

Elfman's is clearly the best score overall, but Rouge Nation was also great. Giacchino's scores, when they weren't banging around like assholes, had some great featured moments (like the "Humpty Dumpty" cue in III and the film version of "Love The Glove" in the fourth one).

I'd be thrilled if Elfman came back and did a score even half way like the one he did for the first film.

I'd be highly disappointed (shut up Thor -- in advance) if he did a score like he's done for about a decade now. It's been one long skippable yawn fest.

I'm biased because Elfman's score was one the scores that got me into film music, but I'd love to see him do another one with the Schifrin influences.

Bring back Silvestri!

As would I! Elfman's score for the first film is actually my favorite non-Burton score of his.

Yes!!!!

I know Schifrin isn't in the best of shape, but if he's well enough, I'd love for him to score at least one M: I film before he goes. That would be a good way to go out, rather then his resume for ten years now.

as a huge elfman, zimmer and giacchino fan it pains me a but to admit rogue nation might have the best score. it's a knock out. this move make zero sense.

tyler is very hit or miss, if it is indeed him this does seem like something he'd do quite well with. still, this news sucks.

Hey, I agree with you for once. I haven't really liked any of Elfman's big assignments in the last decade and then some. His strength has been in smaller, non-action movies.

My favourite M:I score is Zimmer's -- by a looooong mile -- but I don't see him returning anytime soon.

I don't want to speculate. I'll see whoever they choose, and draw my evaluations once I've seen/heard it.
