Hans Zimmer.

He ruins everything now, so hopefully he can score some BS that puts an end to this long-done franchise.

Hans Zimmer? The only James Cameron related gig(s) he may be bothered to score are the Avatar sequels - or at least the first sequel just so he had his name on a film that is very likely to make a lot of money.

Talk about some useless updates...


Says a user who posted a useless comment in a useless thread. Thank goodness you don't dictate the parameters of what we can and cannot say in this speculation/personal commentary thread.

I'll go with Hanz Zimmer. I'm not a fan of him, but I reckon he could ape the good stuff from previous compositions and produce an interesting score.

My quick short list of people I don't want to score it:

  • Hans Zimmer
  • Lorne Balfe
  • Henry Jackman
  • Junkie XL
  • Rob
  • Any MV/RC connected composer.

    All of those would be brilliant! But then again, I've disagreed with Justin about practically everything since before he was even born. big grin

    In all seriousness, I think this is a series that really _does_ need sleek, electronic music that can kind of jump off from what Fidel did, on part 2 specifically. To that end, someone like a Zimmer disciple probably wouldn't be a bad choice. Or somone else who could similarly capture the cold, eerie feeling of relentless pursuit and dread that Fiedel did.

    As much as I love Beltrami's score and Elfman's score, they didn't quite fit the world as well, and I think that the "warmth" their music brought to the series was part of the problem. At least Elfman's movie was a different kind of thing that required a different sort of approach (in that it was set AFTER the robot uprising), but some of the more orchestral bits of T3 just didn't really seem right for the material to me, despite being very effective at times.

    I think some of the more outlandish suggestions in this thread are choices like Giacchino and David Arnold and Alan Silvestri, etc, who really haven't written music that's anything like what the series might need in the past and would be unlikely to do it now. Let a young innovator do it instead of one of the usual suspects. Unless, of course, John Scott is available.

    Same as mine list, BUT Hans (alone!) will be cool.

    It's a tie between Balfe, the Junk and Djawadi for the composer that I don't want. You can add Jablonsky to that list (on Battleship mode).

    I don't think Zimmer would go for it, however if he did I'd think he'd write a pretty good score. Same with HGW and Powell.

    I gave Jablonsky a pass, though I should have based on his output for many years now. Even though I have yet to hear anything from "Steamboy" that I like, I can't fault it for being awful, but I highly doubt he'd take such an approach to a Terminator film.

    I rather this franchise be put out of it's misery already than speculate about who should score Terminator 6. Hollywood is determine on running this franchise into the ground.

    While I agree that they've kind of run this franchise into the ground, I admit that I'm cautiously optimistic about this one. James Cameron is producing the film, Linda Hamilton is returning as Sarah Connor, and reportedly it will be a direct sequel to Terminator 2, ignoring everything that came after.

    Yeah, I recall that, too, which I am glad for. I wish other franchises with awful films would consider this. For example, if they made another Jaws film -- which I am not for! -- the third and fourth should be ignored. It's not like the second is any great shakes, but it's not so horrible it has to be ignored (though I'd be fine with that, too).

    I'm not interested unless they bring Robert Patrick back.
