As confirmed in the below interview. Joy beyond joy.

EDIT: It's all rubbish. This is why fact-checking is important!

To go from Desplat to... this. Wow.

As probably the only JXL fan in the room, I welcome any new assignment. I would like to see him tackle more 'low-key' projects (like the brilliant BRIMSTONE last year), but he often delivers for big stuff like this too. If it's anything near the level of MAD MAX, I'm a happy camper!

I don't know what upsets me more: that XL got the job or that Douglas Pipes (Mike Dougherty's composer from his first two movies) didn't. Leaning toward the second.

Not here on FSM, though.

I can think of no better choice for this picture than noted neoclassical composer Sir Junkington Xavier Lebowitz IV, Esq. I say BRAVO at the news of his selection! The future of quality film music is assured as long as he continues to score every third or fourth film that goes into production these days.

Ha, ha....this should be fairly entertaining and predictable to follow.

I'll be over here in the JXL corner if anyone wants to join. It's only me for now, but I have the best booze and women!

No you're not. I've heard Brimstone, you know.

Looking forward to the Giacchino replacement score!

I love Godzilla and I love Holkenborg's Mad Max. This could be very interesting. IF the production sticks to him...

Desplat wrote the perfect Godzilla score. Why the hell did they not bring him back.

Because ultra-bland combos of melody-free strings and generic pounding percussion are so hot right now.

You're not alone. His 300 score is incredible, Fury Road has great stuff. Same goes for Point Break and Divergent and his work on Man of Steel.

The director just said this was untrue on Twitter.

David Newman confirmed.

That's not funny.

I really hope this is the case. No offense to Mr. XL, but Pipes is a fantastic composer and this is the kind of project that can catapult him into the big leagues. He's also a super nice guy who loves film and film music. I'm rooting for him.
