Here's the tweet:

Is Doyle ever going to get to do a sequel to a movie he scored? Maybe Jack Ryan will take off...

Oh dear. What a dreadful choice.

Personally I thought Doyle's score for ROTPOTA was superb.

I agree and I doubt Giacchino will be able to top it.

A surprise since, as mentioned, Patrick Doyle's re-boot score was so much fun and really offered something fresh and cool and dramatic. Hope Mr. Doyle is well and continues to compose up a storm or shipwreck or two soon.

I don't remember much of Doyle's score (nothing against him, he's done great work)--but if Giacchino can get back to his Lost aesthetic he's a perfect choice. There's some fantastically barbaric music in Lost that is very much in the Planet of the Apes vibe. And if the new movie really does depict a more primitive future society as photos seem to indicate it would be a great opportunity for that kind of score.

+1 on this, much of Giacchino's work on "Lost" could be a forerunner to music he might possibly compose for an "Apes" film. This is great!

Yes, if this film features apes riding horse back, then I think Giacchino is a good choice for composer.

I thought his end credits cue for Land Of The Lost was very ape-ish.

Um... why?

Well, this does go in line with the original movies (Goldsmith - Rosenman - Goldsmith - Scott - Rosenman). Maybe they'll bring him back for the third one?

I thought it was bombastic, schmaltzy, obvious, lowest common denominator, power anthem pap. Not a touch on Goldsmith, Rosenman or even Elfman.

For a series with a legacy of experimental scores, for me it was a huge let down.

On this note, it was never going to happen but I'd love to see Brian Reitzell get a gig in this series based on his brilliant work for HANNIBAL.

As far as I'm concerned, any Michael Giacchino score announcement is a good announcement. I thought Doyle's score was okay, but nothing special or memorable.
