Hans Zimmer set to score Cary Fukunaga’s No Time to Die
Four-time Grammy winner and Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer has reportedly signed on as the new composer for Universal Pictures’ upcoming 25th Bond movie No Time to Die, replacing Dan Romer who was dismissed by EON Productions last month due to “creative differences,” Variety confirmed. 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.
The outlet notes that due to his heavy workload and No Time to Die‘s near April release, Zimmer might enlist the help of his previous collaborators including 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).
EON Productions and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios have partnered with Universal Pictures on the worldwide release of the 25th James Bond film. The superspy’s previous outing, 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.
