According to IMDB...

"Michael Kamen was the film's original composer along with his friend, David Sanborn, who was going to provide the saxophone solos for the score. His score was rejected after the film was delayed with re-shoots and post production issues. The film's original posters list Kamen and Sanborn as the composers. Mark Mancina would replace Kamen and it was the second time the he would replace him on a film in the same year, the other being Assassins also produced by Joel Silver, which would also be delayed and released within months of each other."

If true, it sounds like a score was recorded then tossed... is it possible we might get to hear it someday?

[known] Rejected Kamen scores recorded partially or fully (partially could be in demo form, too):

"Dead Bang" (some left in the film)

"Assassins"

"Fair Game" (which may not have been fully recorded, as the troubles on the film lead him, unfortunately, to concentrate on "Assassins")

"Strange Days"

"The Avengers" [1] (Marius De-Vries)

"Tomb Raider" [1]

and possibly "Kinderstransport".

Wouldn't mind a collection or 'best of' of these.

Funny I have a memory of seeing the FG poster in a theater back in the day with the Kamen Sanborn listing. Would love to hear this score... The Lethal Weapon films are my favorite action scores period.

From a 6/6/10 post by MV:

If we ever get back in biz with WB this and Assassins we are on the to do list.

I think this might've been back when WaterTower Music was getting started and LLL wasn't sure about their future with WB... thankfully, that doesn't appear to be a problem anymore.

Like JohnF, I remember a poster at the theater with Kamen and Sanborn's names on it. I went in to see the film, and suddenly Mark Mancina was the composer. And WHAT a score. One of my absolute favorites ever. Seems like the trumpet became the new solo instrument instead of Sanborn's sax. Thankfully, I got a CD called The Hans Zimmer/Mark Mancina Collaboration after I had seen the film, featuring 2 cuts from the score. I now also have a great "unmentionable" with Mancina's score.

Funnily, several of those received good scores in the end, like Mancina's Fair Game and Assassins, Gary Chang's Dead Bang, and Deep Forest's (and Graeme Revell's) Strange Days.

Hopefully. But it won't be this year, as I asked MV in another thread here a month or two ago if there were any other rejected scores coming from them, and he said likely not, and "First love" was the only one he he thought was this year. Of course it could change, but I don't think it's likely. Wish I had the precise quote in front of me.
