Carter Burwell Returning to Twilight Saga to Score “Breaking Dawn”Jan 9th, 2011 | By Stefanie | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News, Music
According to Indiewire, Carter Burwell is set to compose the score for Breaking Dawn:
Coen Brothers and Spike Jonze regular collaborator Carter Burwell is set to return to the ‘Twilight’ since working on the first film to perform scoring duties for the final installment of the series, the two parter ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn.’
There’s been no official confirmation from Summit, but it definitely makes sense seeing as, we reported a few weeks back, that Burwell has worked with Bill Condon in the past. (Side note: In that same article, I mentioned how I’d love to have Dario Marianelli compose the score for Breaking Dawn and funny enough, the Indiewire article states that he’s scoring the upcoming adaptation of Jane Eyre! Not too shabby! ) Also, earlier this week I’d been browsing around various composers’ IMDB pages, and noticed that Carter Burwell had a suspiciously clean slate for 2011, so methinks that his return to Twilight is indeed going to happen. Now we wait for the official word.
What do y’all think? Are you happy that Burwell might be returning? Or are you like me where Twilight maybe isn’t your favorite score but you don’t want to dwell too much on it and are hoping to deal with the fact that Alexandre Desplat isn’t returning because he’s in fact very busy this year? (Was that a run-on sentence? By golly, it probably is. hehe) (Another side note: Yes, I’ve made my opinion on the matter quite known. Desplat’s score just broke my heart when I first heard it and during the subsequent times I listened to it. Have I mentioned before that New Moon is my favorite of the films? 😉 Oh, I have? Well, it needs repeating! haha )
