It looks like four-time Grammy winner and Oscar winning composer Hans Zimmer signed on as the new composer for the upcoming 25th Bond movie No Time To Die. The report came from Variety today that Zimmer will be replacing Dan Romer who was dismissed by EON Productions last month due to “creative differences,” the project will be added to Zimmer’s growing slate of highly-anticipated films he’s currently working on including Wonder Woman 1984, Top Gun: Maverick and Dune.
One thing that I can say is Hans Zimmer has his work cutout for him considering he’s working on four other projects. Variety also reports that he might enlist some of his other collaborators to help him since No Time To Die nears its April release date. Those collaborators include: Benjamin Wallfisch and Lorne Balfe in order to finish the recording for the Cary Joji Fukunaga-directed film by mid-February.
Confirmed cast members returning for the film include Daniel Craig reprising his iconic role as James Bond for the last time, Ralph Fiennes as M, Lea Seydoux (Spectre), Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as A, with Rory Kinnear as Tanner and Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter. New cast members confirmed for the film include Dali Benssalah, Billy Magnussen, Ana De Armas, David Dencik, Lashana Lynch and Rami Malek.
Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective) will direct No Time To Die which features a script written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns with Cary Joji Fukunaga and Emmy winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve).
Spectre, opened in U.S. theaters on November 16, 2015. The film earned $200 million domestically and $680.6 million internationally, for a worldwide total of $880.7 million.
No Time to Die is due to hit theaters in the UK on April 3, 2020, and on April 8, 2020, in the US.
