Dan Romer isn’t scoring the next James Bond film anymore, as Hans Zimmer steps in at the last minute.
With three months to go until the release of the new James Bond film, No Time To Die, there’s been a late change in personnel in the film score department.
The plan was for Dan Romer to originally do the score to the 25th James Bond movie, but he left the project in December, with creative differences cited between him and Eon Productions. Eon has now drafted in the experienced hands of Hans Zimmer to take on the music, and he’s got until the middle of next month to get the score completed. Variety notes that he may be bringing in help with film score collaborators in order to complete the work.
UPDATE: Zimmer’s appointment has now been confirmed, via the James Bond social channels.
CONFIRMED: @HansZimmer will compose the score for #NoTimeToDie. Director Cary Joji Fukunaga said: “I’m beyond excited that Hans is scoring #NoTimeToDie. The music of Bond has always been iconic and I’ve already witnessed Hans adding his touch of genius to the Bond legacy.” pic.twitter.com/L3q06ymLyH

As for Romer, he’s been a regular collaborator of No Time To Die director Cary Fukunaga, but for whatever reason, things didn’t work out on the Bond film.
No Time To Die arrives in cinemas at the start of April.
