With both of the Tolkein trilogies finally finished, it’s not known what Peter Jackson will be making next (another Tintin film is possible), or whether Shore will be on board. Shore’s partnership with David Cronenberg has lasted since 1979 -- only five years less than the Williams-Spielberg team -- and while their most recent films together, Cosmopolis and Maps to the Stars, haven’t received nearly the attention of such Cronenberg efforts as A History of Violence and Eastern Promises, Shore’s offbeat scores demonstrated that he’s still eagerly pursuing new approaches to film music. He continues to be Martin Scorsese’s primary composer and earned his first non-Tolkein nomination for 2011’s lavish Hugo. While Scorsese took the song-based approach for 2013’s underrated The Wolf of Wall Street (which did feature some source cues by Theodore Shapiro), Shore and Scorsese are currently expected to reunite for the director’s long-in-development Silence, starring Liam Neeson and Andrew Garfield.  The rest of Shore’s upcoming output is uncertain -- he was originally announced for two new films, Gary Ross’s Civil War adventure drama Free State of Jones and the remake of Disney’s Pete’s Dragon, but The Big Short’s Nicholas Britell has since been announced to score Jones, and IMDB currently lists Daniel Hart for Dragon (Hart scored Ain’t Them Bodies Saints for Dragon director David Lowery), an assignment recently confirmed by Film Music Reporter. Either way, his ongoing director relationships -- and the recent achievement of having scored his fourth Best Picture winner, 2015’s Spotlight -- should mean that Shore can still write his own ticket.
