NO WAY.

Marianelli should be the one for this project!


According to one source that I trust, Marianelli is out and John Powell is in.

John Powell of course would be great. But would have been interesting to have heard what Marianelli would have done with it.

As for the film. The trailer does nothing to dissuade me that this yet another overproduced, CGI ladened, uberhyped extravaganza. Not interested.

This won't be the first Joe Wright film without a Marianelli score - Wright personally chose The Chemical Brothers to score his film "Hanna" in 2011 (for which I assume they gave Wright exactly what he wanted, though it wasn't my cup of tea). That said, if Marianelli wrote and recorded a score for "Pan" that was legitimately rejected by the studio then this is indeed bad news, especially following "Anna Karenina" which I thought was excellent.

Powell is the most talented of the former MV crew but I personally haven't loved any of his scores. Wasn't he rejected from the "Carrie" remake? That I'd like to hear.

Oh, he recorded score, I just can't say if it was everything.

I was very much looking forward to this score. :-(

Justin, is your first sentence referring to Powell's "Carrie" or Marianelli's "Pan?"

Dario's score.

This is very disappointing news. I can't imagine Joe Wright would throw out the score from his regular collaborator so this must be producer driven...

What is even weirder. He wrote a score last year (THE BOXTROLLS) than more than proves he's up to the task... Some really good stuff in that one.

Yay, the Peter Pan origin story we've all been craving!
This looks terrible. Marianelli is lucky to be out.

Sadly Marianelli had to go. Who to blame? The corporate body of Warner Brothers. They'd make remarks like "your score is too European". The producers obviously want a lighter, funnier film and thought his score was too dark. Director still supported him. But ultimately with these big studio pictures, the studio has the final say. So bastards really.

Apparently the guy who works on this picture said he wasn't all that surprised, since they had pretty much said it might happen for the last 4 months.

But it doesn't excuse them having worked directly with him, saying they were happy with everything and then turning on him after the screening. If they were unhappy with the musical direction, they should have told him sooner. If only to give the next guy a half chance of writing a decent replacement score.

As regards score, it's like an old school score really. Orchestral, grand, heavy use of brass. A bit more straightforward harmonically than Brothers Grimm. He simplified it quite significantly after the first preview. In an effort to make it less European. Sadly it was never recorded.

As for Marianelli, he's pretty pissed off.

I don't envy Powell really, as he has a hell of a mountain to climb because the recording sessions are in 5 weeks time!

daretodream,

I'm a bit confused by your post. Is what you wrote creative speculation informed by some disparate details or do you have inside knowledge of this situation? Reads like the latter but I can't tell. The scenario you presented, in either case, certainly rings true.

And if you indeed are close to the situation, by "not recorded" do you mean that the preview was tracked with original synth mock-ups? And are the synth mock-ups what what you (?) heard and are calling "old school?"

Yeah, a friend of mine has been working (and still is) since the project started. Yep, it was tracked with synth mock-ups. I have heard a bit, but that's because I was assisting him at one point. I didn't really hear the whole score, only fragments really.

I am sure he has been compensated and all, but I know that Dario has been working very had on this project.
It's sad that they chose to replace him, instead of giving him another chance. Nope, they'd rather fire him. Typical.

Yeah, please enlighten us, daretodream. Not only post a tidbit and leave us hanging.

Yeah... Marianelli is definitely lucky to have worked on something for a year and then be replaced without ever getting his work finished until truly presentable state.
Well... at least we'll get another generic score instead of what could have been one of the best scores of the year.

So was this score even properly recorded? Or were they just mockups?

I'm left scratching my head why people in this thread are dumping on John Powell?

I'm also left wondering - wasn't John on sabbatical from Hollywood assignments?

Nobody is dumping on Powell, mate.

We're just mourning for Marianelli.

Only mock ups.
