Not excited. C’mon Tim…
At least Danny can do another tribute to Nino Rota.
I told you, it’s always ddddeeee…
For the rest, it’s such a bizarre idea for a live-action film that…well, I’m intrigued at least.
“Dumbo” is among my favourite Disney’s movies, and I usually like Burton a lot, so I’m curious to see this but still, it’s a bit frightening.
I’m sure it would have a great score, the animated classic is largely a silent movie and these movies tend to have wonderful music regardless of quality. I’m listening to Cinderella and it’s wonderful, though apparently the movie is actually really good too.
But I was kind of hoping Burton would stay away from the bigger movies, at least for a while.
Looks like this is Burton’s next movie after all.
As uninspiring as the projet sounds, I’m curious on how it will look like.
Can’t wait for more Elfman carnival music!
FYI, Tom Hanks is in talks to play the main vilain. Will Smith was also in talks for a while but it didn’t work out (not that I’m complaining).
Oh God yes. Still not sold on the idea but that casting looks incredibly exciting…
After Silvestri replacing Williams on Ready Player One (which I’m still excited about!) I wish we’d get some Elfman confirmation on this one.
I see Michael Keaton has confirmed. Now, who’s writing the music? 🙂
Now, who’s writing the music?
Elfman : “You should ask Tim Burton that question…”
March 29, 2019.
Disney posted a press release detailing the cast and crew – no composer listed. 🙁
No love for Deep Roy?
With a release so far away, I wouldn’t count Elfman’s omission in the crew list as anything indicative. Still, I’m not getting a good vibe about the Elfman-Burton relationship lately…
Because I’m cool, I checked previous start-of-production press releases and Elfman was included on those for Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows (and Alice Through the Looking Glass); Frankenweenie and Big Eyes didn’t have any (though he was confirmed for Frankenweenie a year and a half in advance) and no composer was listed on the Miss Peregrine one.
This is such a huge musical opportunity that I need Elfman on-board. More importantly, I don’t want a Burton/Keaton reunion set to anyone else’s music.
Elfman mentioned in a Mexican press conference that he’s scoring this, apparently.
Muy buena noticia !
Here’s the video.
