I was idly checking Beltrami's IMDb page yesterday and saw that he was now scoring this movie. While it breaks my heart that John Powell is off the project (and how effing cool would it have been to hear a John Powell horror score?!), I know that Beltrami will do a good job.

I'm also saddened to see Powell off this project too, but I know Beltrami will deliver smile

Does this mean that Powell won't be scoring the new Paul Greengrass film either?

Sadly both All you Need is Kill (Doug Liman) and Captain Phillips (Paul Greengrass) have been removed from Powell's imdb list, though thankfully The Good dinosaur (Pixar) and How To Train Your Dragon 2 remain. I hope nothing bad has happened to him, as that's quite a dramatic shedding of projects, all interesting ones as well. Then again, imdb isn't the most trustworthy source as we all know, so maybe he was never attached to these films officially, or perhaps he will end up doing them after all (except for Carrie, of course).

Anyway, disappointing as it is Beltrami is an excellent choice for a replacement. This should (given the subject matter and cast/director) be a more character-led horror film than the norm so I'm hoping we will get a great theme and a more 'narrative' score overall.

Why should Powell score any Pixar movies? I hope that is a BS!

I think he has STATED publicly in some recent interview that he is taking time off after having worked pretty much nonstop for past 15 years to devote time to his children and family... Similarly HGW is also taking some time off and he should be doing some teaching (?) or also decided to spent more time with his family (?), not sure what his reasons were, but both are pretty much "on holiday".
I am sure I've heard/read that somewhere, but I can't remember where it was exactly.

Why not? He'd be great!

Based on his recent animated scores, he wouldn't.

... You mean like How To Train Your Dragon? For which he received an Oscar nomination for?

Since when exactly has oscar nomination anything to do with the quality?

FYI, I was refering to all of his Ice Ages, Kung Fu Pandas, Martians, Bolts, Hortons, etc...

Does Beltrami have a monopoly over remakes, re-imaginings, prequel, sequels?

Powell would have been nice.


He also seems to have a monopoly on replacing John Powell (there's something suspecious about that; maybe an agency relation, or the composers suggesting each other).

"Jonah Hex"
"Mad Max 4"
and now "Carrie"


Beltrami's scoring Mad Max 4? He's probably the most busiest film composer in Hollywood right now. As glad as I am about him getting more projects. I just wish it wasn't pointless remakes (Carrie), prequels (The Thing), sequels (Die Hard 4 and 5) all the time. I don't have any interest in this remake (except in the score). The same goes for Die Hard 5 and The Wolverine.

Beltrami is a good medicine against spending money ... but that's just my opinion

shame, I love Powell and the Carrie story

I'll listen the Pino Donaggio's ...

Kraft-Engel Management still has "Captain Philips" listed for him.

He's scored, like, 50 such movies in the last four years. Not all of them can be home runs. (Some of them were. Others were solid triples.)

I expect a bucket of blood to be present at the scoring sessions...

I miss the days when Hollywood would release movies based on Stephen King novels instead of nowadays movies based on Stephen King movies' box office return.


Carrie is a King's book. Chloe Moretz said that this film will be much more faithful to the book than Brian De Palma's movie. Too bad that Powell isn't scoring it.


Too bad, because even Stephen King admits that Brian De Palma improved his source material. No remake will equal what De Palma, his cast, his crew and Pino Donaggio did.

At least it's not Powell. The guy has no musical identity whatsoever (and How To Train Your Dragon was a bad attempt at trying to be Jerry Goldsmith).

And I've said this before but why won't Hollywood give Bear McCreary a shot at a film score? The guy has basically dominated action and sci-fi on television so he should be given the opportunity to do a big studio tentpole.

I have to disagree about Powell. I think his musical voice is quite clear among many composers today, and I'd have loved to hear what he did with this project. That said, Beltrami is quite a talented composer, and I will look into this score when it comes out. As to McCreary, it might be his own choice: I remember him saying that he prefers TV shows to films, as there is so much more time for story, characters, and likewise the music to develop.

Why can they not leave old films alone and come up with new ideas for new scores?

Plus since the highpoint of his film career so far is Step Up 3D...
