GDT just posted on his website that the announcement of composer for his blockbuster 'Pacific Rim' is coming very soon. He said it's a high profile composer who is very popular right now and he has not worked with him before.
Unless a miracle happens, I think I've lost my interest in the movie.
that miracle won't happen to be your boy Beltrami would it? someone popular? Zimmer maybe? will be disappointed if it was Michael G. love his animated stuff, but his live action scores never fails to bore me
A guy on that website who claims to be in the know, says its an Oscar winner who has been scoring popular movies for years and years. So maybe Horner?
That narrows in down to:
Michael Giacchino A.R. Rahman (sort of counts, he's scored a lot of popular Bollywood films) Howard Shore Elliott Goldenthal James Horner Alan Menken Hans Zimmer John Williams (though of course, Williams is semi-retired) Randy Newman
I'm guessing it's Shore (since his 2013 schedule is empty other than The Hobbit sequel).
Zimmer and co scoring a monster movie. Officially now on my top 5 most anticipated scores this year... At least I think Rim is this year.
It won't be out until 2013.
Personally, I find this disappointing. Beltrami overlooked for Giacchino, Horner or Shore I could go along with. Beltrami overlooked in favour of further domination from Zimmer and the Remote Control gang... not so much.
