AKA: "Ghostbusters 3", coming October of 2020:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4513678/reference

No composer has bee announced yet. The trailer is supposed to drop any day now.



So, with original cast members returning, I am hoping it's kept "in family" so to speak, and Peter Bernstein scores it (all the orchestrators for Elmer's score are still alive, as well as the ondes martenot player). If his father trusted him to work with him, and do co-scoring on "Wild Wild West", certainly I think the director can.

Well, I hope that, but I fear he'll just default to who he has worked with multiple times (Rolfe Kent; though this is not a slight at Kent).

Maybe with Peter conducting a substantial series of Ghostbuster live to film performances this year, if Reitman Jr. attended one he will consider hiring Bernstein Jr. It's a long shot but that's my hope too. smile

And hopefully Jason attended, hopefully giving Peter time to chat before and afterwards:

"So, Jason, I hear you're directing that new Ghostbusters film. So, about the scoring..."

How often does Beltrami get to score comedies? This might be up his alley.

    Kent in spooky mode intrigues me. I'd like to hear this stretch.

    Great idea. Yes, please!

    I'm going to guess that most "Ghostbusters" fans will want to hear Bernstein's themes, and also possibly Randy Edelman's. I believe Sony - like Disney with "Star Wars" - understands what the fans want, so there's a good chance this will be getting some kind of adaptation score.

    Personally, I would be completely interested in a new Randy Edelman score that also incorporated Bernstein's themes. But the best case scenario is most definitely Peter Bernstein doing this.

    As the OP pointed out, Jason Reitman has worked with Rolfe Kent a few times. Seems like he'd be a good fit.

    But really, I think Theodore Shapiro wrote an excellent score for the 2016 movie too.

    I’m praying whoever scores it (and please let it be Peter!) makes use of the Ondes Martenot. It really added to the atmosphere of the first film.

    Bring back David F***ing Arnold!

    Oh wait, wrong thread...

    No offense, but they're not going to hire Peter Bernstein to score this movie. They're going to hire a modern composer who is currently scoring projects that people have heard of.

    George Fenton was attached to one of the incarnations of "Ghostbusters 3" years ago, so I suppose he might be considered too.

    Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross?

    I'd absolutely love Rolfe Kent to do it, but he's never done anything like this and doubt he'd be given the chance. The director worked with Rob Simonsen on his last two films, and while he hasn't done anything particularly big either he's proved very versatile and it seems more feasible to me that he'd be hired than Kent. Not my first choice, but I think he'd be interesting.

    Agreed.
