And get a good composer who can can completely start over--no faux John Barry. Nobody can do John Barry, and I'm tired of people trying to.

Spot on.....


Have to disagree: Since Barry created the essential Bond sound I would terribly miss any attempt at emulating it.

Why not John Scott? I mean, he already lives there! He can just pop 'round the studio after a round of gardening!
It's been strange to have such long delays between Bond films during these Daniel Craig years - 4-5 years between installments can be frustrating.

Eric Serra!

Over the years I've come to like his Goldeneye score. Back in 1995 I really didn't like it (at the time I thought it was one of the worst things about the movie, possibly because it's the least Bondian element in the film) but rewatches have softened me on it a little. And it's a better listen on CD, with some terrific moments in there, principally "We Share The Same Passions". It's probably not going to happen, but I'd sooner he had a second crack at 007 than Thomas Newman a third.

Fukunaga started following Dan Romer on Instagram yesterday. They have worked together in the past, not once - surely Romer is his favourite for the gig.

I always quite liked the Serra, and thought it went well with the dark side of the new era. But with Serra you can get some really good stuff, like Goldeneye, or some really awful stuff (to my ears) like Rollerball. I'm happy to have Goldeneye as Serra's sole foray into the world of Bond and would favour Dan Pemberton, based on his music for "The Game", not that it's anything to do with me.

I think JOHN SCOTT would be a really interesting choice! I love his score for "Shoot to Kill".
It will not happen though. I guess they will choose a more modern composer who will deliver a score that has 0% to do with "James Bond music" (as was the case with Thomas Newman)...

Theoretically a good idea but the problem is that this almost always leads to a score that does not sound like Bond-music at all (Thomas Newman, Michel Legrand, Michael Kamen)!

Eric Serra´s score was not really good, but - while sounding very modern - at least it had some "Bond-feeling" in it, which was completely absent from Newman´s or Legrand´s music...

Are you crazy? roll eyes This guy has 90 years old or something like that, and he's on retirement since 10 years.

So is Ennio Morricone (2 years older) - and he still even gives concerts (and writes scores, of course)!

I'd love Craig Armstrong or John Powell to score it.
Might give me some interest in Bond that I rarely have, although I have tended to like the Craig ones (well, two of them, with CASINO ROYALE being my fave Bond ever).

Powell is not interested in „action films with fire and guns”. He told this many times in interviews. Please check „All Access” by FilmMusicMedia for instance.

Erm. What?

He's the kingpin of Bourne and he's done the latest Star Wars spin-off. With all due respect, I very much doubt he'd turn down a Bond gig if it was offered.


I seem to remember that Powell stated that he was happy to do "Agent Cody Banks" because it was the unique opporunity for him to work on a Bond like score without doing a James Bond film, with the meaning he had no intention of scoring the real thing. And quite frankly, Bond seems the opposite of the kind of character hero Powell would approve or the type of movie he repeatedly said he didn't like.
I think it was written in the Cody Banks CD liner notes but I'm not sure (perhaps someone can check, I don't have it)

But not that I wouldn't love to be proven wrong (I actually thought he would not do Star WARS, you know)

  • I think JOHN SCOTT would be a really interesting choice!

  • Are you crazy? roll eyes This guy has 90 years old or something like that,

    Also, Scott can compose without having to conduct.

  • I know it won't happen, but it would be really cool if Conti came out of retirement to score it. Imagine what Conti could do with a modern Bond film. It would be amazing!

    I didn't like his score of For Your Eyes Only but I still think he can crank out a good Bond score nevertheless.

    I really hope this happens because it would be interesting to see how much time the replacement composer has to completely rescore the movie once Conti gets fired.

    Arnold will be high up on the list due to his long involvement with the films.

    But EON and Fukunaga might decide to switch gears and give another composer a chance to lend this film a fresh sound. Naturally, it will be someone who is highly sought after right now and will also bring a certain prestige. After Thomas Newman they will hardly go to Joe Kraemer (although I would love to hear him to do it).

    So I would expect these:

    - Hans Zimmer
    - John Powell
    - James Newton Howard


    But I would prefer these:

    - Roque Banos
    - Alberto Iglesias
    - Ludwig Görannson

    Would not be surprised if it was Balfe. A UK born composer who scored one of the successful entries in the MI series.

    Colin Towns or Christopher Gunning.

    I will be very disappointed if it is not David Arnold.

    He can to melody like no other current composers.(All his Bonds) He can do cool.(Tomorrow Never Dies) He can do bombast.(Die Another Day) He can do elegance.(Quantum of Solace). It all comes down to the film! Whatever they make, he delivers an appropriate BOND score.

    John Powell score could also be good. But not Bondian in the vein of Arnold. Arnold is like Barry and Mancini - a tune smith who does scores. Was it not Elmer Bernstein who said of David Arnold that he was the "real thing" or something to that effect?
