Hans Zimmer To Score SUPERMAN For Zack Snyder
Thompson on Hollywood spoke to Zimmer at a DVD/Blu-ray release party for Inception, where he announced the news. Zimmer knows a thing or two about creating intense and powerful scores, he came up with the scores for Inception and The Dark Knight Returns.
On Jan. 1 he starts scoring Chapter 4 in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, which shot months ago in Hawaii. He’ll follow that with the Sherlock Holmes sequel, a Kung Fu Panda follow-up; then he’ll work on Nolan’s new Superman chapter.
Nolan and David Goyer just had an idea they couldn’t believe wasn’t being explored by Warner Bros. And with Zack Snyder now on board as director, Nolan will be busy making “The Dark Knight Rises” and “we are handing it off to him.” So, take note anyone out there thinking this will be a strange Nolan/Snyder partnership. Thomas reiterated that they brought it to an appropriate screenplay and it’s now Snyder’s picture.
