Award-winning producer, songwriter and film composer Dan Romer has been hired to handle the musical score for the new James Bond film which still does not have a title at this stage.
The hiring is not unexpected, “Bond 25” director Cary Fukunaga has worked with Romer before on both “Beasts of No Nation” and his Netflix series “Maniac”. Fukunaga is currently filming the project in the UK.
Romer broke through with the score on Sundance smash “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and has since worked on numerous films, documentaries, TV shows and games including “Atypical,” “The Good Doctor,” “Far Cry 5,” “The Little Hours,” “Zoe,” “Chasing Coral,” “A Ciambra” and “Katie Says Goodbye”.
Both Justin Hurwitz (“First Man”) and go to Bond series vet David Arnold (“Casino Royale, “Quantum of Solace”) were speculated as potential candidates for the new film. Thomas Newman, who did the scores for the most recent two films “Skyfall” and “Spectre,” left the franchise with director Sam Mendes.
