It’ll be Giacchino (just to spite you, Thor ). The Wachowski’s and Davis (among many other collaborators) had a major falling out after Revolutions. I can’t see Davis being asked to return.
That would be a shame. Hope they'll be able to mend their differences, even if it's a long shot. I'm also open to another composer collaborating with Juno if Davis falls through (Goldenthal would be another dream, but again an extreme long shot since he's turned his back on big Hollywood productions), but the thought of Giacchino freezes my blood to ice.
I love the trilogy but feel a fourth movie will only lend to subtraction. The theory that mass media has hit complete saturation that there is no new money to be made seems to be more factual with every passing franchise.
I would welcome Don Davis' return though. I enjoy Giacchino but I'm not big on shifting gears, after the fact.
This board is so 'cutting edge'. Probably the only place on the internet where the news about a confirmed MATRIX 4 is not mentioned anywhere almost 24 hours later.
I visit Dark Horizons everyday and no one there is talking about it. There had been news bits here and there previous to any official announcements. No doubt there will be more to talk about when there IS more to talk about. But a film score message board not stirring over a new Matrix film when there has yet to be ANY sort of suggestion of what the music will be is totally understandable.
Totally unnecessary sequel/reboot/whatever. Keanu seems to have a serious case of sequelitis with the upcoming Bill and Ted 3, John Wick 4, and now this. What's next Speed 3 (with Sandra Bullock returning) and a sequel to the original Point Break? This sequel will most likely pull a Halloween: H40 where it'll ignore the sequels but is only 20+ year follow up to the original. That would be the explanation as to why Reeves and Moss are returning if anyone remembers the fate of their characters in the last installment. It's very telling too that only one of the Wachowskis is returning as writer/director for this instead of both. Did they have a falling out or something too?
Speaking of falling outs. It's a pity if Davis and the Wachowskis had a falling out because The Matrix scores are some of the best scores in the genre, imo. A Matrix movie won't be the same without Davis composing the score, imo. So as much as I enjoy Giacchino's music I hope Davis returns instead. At this point Davis' score would be my only interest in this unnecessary sequel.
