Harry Gregson-Williams Is Not Scoring “Breaking Dawn”

Dec 13th, 2010 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News, Music

The Soundtracks Examiner recently interviewed Harry Gregson-Williams and asked him all manner of questions.  The one that stands out the most is the one that addresses a rumor supposing Williams was composing the score for Breaking Dawn

I read rumblings on the Internet about you being in talks to score the fourth TWILIGHT movie, BREAKING DAWN. Is there any truth to that?

No, not at all. The only bit of truth to that rumor might be in a fifth grade Manhattan Beach Middle School. [Laughs] My daughter is very keen on me to do this. She’s crazy about the TWILIGHT series. But no, there is absolutely no truth to that rumor at all. I haven’t heard anything about it at all. I know nothing about. When it comes to fourths, SHREK is as far as I go!

To read the rest of the interview, where Williams talks about his work on Shrek, The Chronicles of Narnia and other films go here!

I hadn’t heard of this rumor prior to reading this interview.  And if we’re talking potential composers for Breaking Dawn, Bill Condon, might I suggest having Alexandre Desplat revisit the saga, or maybe Dario Marianelli, who composed the beautiful score for 2005’s Pride and Prejudice?  I know you’ve previously worked with Carter Burwell (Gods and Monsters and Kinsey), but I think it’d be awesome to go in a different direction for Breaking Dawn. hint hint. 🙂 Seriously, though I’m game for whomever Condon chooses to compose the scores.  I love being introduced to new composers through film!
