That last message was from me. I have different log-ons at FSM and FSM Online, and they got tangled. Must be something to do with all those problems I have with getting the facts right.

(I've seen too many unmade Spielberg films listed as confirmed Williams assignments

But TINTIN has already been shot, they're just working on the motion-capture CG for nearly three years. Surely Williams will score it...

Pope's confirmed that he's worked on orchestrating some of Williams' music for the film as well.

That's wonderful news. I saw A.I. for the seventh time last night (not counting one DVD viewing) and was blown away as always by its fantastic score, which for me is his best since the 80s. (I also love the film, despite its myriad flaws).

And thank you for the reminder of the Gorfaine/Schwartz website. The last time I'd tried to log on I couldn't get to those composer resumes, but I see they are accessible again. They're an excellent source of research for these columns.

You're welcome.


I had been checking it to see if Williams would get the DH scoring assignment, but now I know.

And expect some updates to this series based on Gorfaine/Schwartz site info.

I know. I remain convinced that it's Spielberg's Vertigo, and will be appreciated as the masterpiece it is in a few decades.

Did you see the gorgeous coffee table book that came out for Xmas with production artwork and more? I got a copy, it's a must-have if you like the film. "Artificial Intelligence: From Stanley Kubrick to Steven Spielberg: The Vision Behind The Film"

I saw it at the Academy's library, but I didn't realize it was a new book; I just assumed it was one they only just bought.

I'm going to send a quick email to his agent and CONFIRM this. I wonder if that's why he's overseas for a few several months working? His manager told me he's away for a several months. Maybe he's away on vacation, I'm guessing he's working, hopefully on Potter!!

I'm VERY happy to hear this news. I really do enjoy AD's music!

A few days ago I heard the same thing.... so there's probably some credence to it. The same conversation mentioned that JW is likely doing the last one. But take it all with a shaker of salt.

I know, I was shocked but thrilled to see it at Barnes & Noble, eight years after the film failed to find its audience. It seems to be because the Kubrick archives are bursting open, a huge gift set focusing on his unmade NAPOLEON was also released for Xmas.

I could not be more thrilled, short of an announcement that Williams would be doing it, of course.

Now I'm going to be giddy for the rest of the week!

AWESOME NEWS!!! big grin Sans Williams himself, Desplat is a terrific choice for Potter. Here's just hoping he'll be allowed to use more than one or two quotes of "Hedwig's Theme".

Question is 'would he?' use more than the odd reference to Hedwig's theme. He didn't tip his hat much to Carter Burwell in NEW MOON.

Not that I care. Next to John Williams or Christopher Gordon doing the film, this is the next best thing to me.

Burwell's Twilight score is hardly as iconic as Williams' Potter themes. It'd be like someone else scoring a Star Wars feature without using any of Williams' themes. A big problem with the Nicolas Hooper scores was that, despite a wan rendition of Hedwig's Theme over the opening credits, there was barely any of Williams' thematic material at hand.

Considering my two favorite Desplat scores are The Golden Compass and (yes) New Moon, this is very VERY good news.

He might prove me wrong, but my instinct is that he'll do his own thing, and given the director is the same as the last two, he probably won't be under any pressure to quote themes from the first three films.
He does hold Williams in great respect after all, but then again he holds Burwell in high regard too.
