    Gus Van Sant is filming his new movie (one that he’s being trying to make for years). There is no composer attached yet, but it looks poised for Awards season, so hopefully Elfman and Van Sant will reunite. The movie stars Joaquin Phoenix and is based on the biography of paraplegic cartoonist John Callahan.

    I’m hopeful he’ll be announced for this soon; he doesn’t seem to have any other upcoming movies (bar Fifty Shades Freed I’m assuming).

    “We worked together today, actually.” Seems like he’s already working on this.

    Elfman’s regulars have started adding this to their resumes online (Edgardo Simone and Noah Snyder).

    I heard Elfman started work on Justice League around five weeks ago so I wonder how the scheduling worked out.

    ‘Set in Van Sant’s native Portland, and zeroing in on a very narrow segment of Callahan’s book, the film once again finds avant-gardist Van Sant operating in ultra-conventional Lasse Hallström mode, spinning a handsome, honey-toned inspirational tale (bolstered by one of the warmest scores of Danny Elfman’s career),’

    Also, Elfman and Van Sant are taking part in a ‘Cinema Cafe’ interview in a few hours. These are always really informative and lengthy!

    Van Sant maintains an improvisatory spirit, too. He has elicited a stupendous score from Danny Elfman that’s largely bebop but with alternately eerie and comforting orchestral noodling.

    While it doesn’t seem like it’s a home run, this is looking to be Elfman’s first well-received movie since Goosebumps.

    Funny how he kept watching his watch during the Sundance Q&A and I thought that it wasn’t very polite as busy as he is. And then, when they were about to wrap it up, he looked one more time and said “we can have one more question if it’s possible”.

    I’ll never doubt of you again Danny, I promise !

    That dual interview was mesmerizing! Also re “looking to be Elfman’s first well-received movie since Goosebumps”, i think it should be noted that though panned by critics, JUSTICE LEAGUE took in $650m+ worldwide and has relatively high audience scores across the board. And while the critics panned TULIP and GIRL, both films received kudos for Elfman’s scores, especially the latter. Just trying to look at the bright side!

    Justice League was a huge underperformer.

    True about Elfman getting good notices (even if Tulip Fever made no good use of Elfman’s excellent music) for those films though, and he’s been getting the same for this one.

    I’m normally not too fussed on the quality of the movies, but this year has seen Elfman score four big critical duds, so it’s nice to see this get good notices (currently at 90% at Rotten Tomatoes).

    I’m also happy for Van Sant, who has made some of my favourite movies – My Own Private Idaho, Drugstore Cowboy, To Die For, Elephant…

    At least this breaks the trend in less than three years, lest we forget the critical dud brigade that was 1998-2001 (CIVIL ACTION to PLANET OF THE APES). *shiver*

    Danny and the Hillbilly Boyz ?!?
    It reminds me of Mosley and the B-Men from a midnight run. Hopefully, it’s a new song by Danny.

    The movie is already out in theaters in Switzerland. How strange it gets such a late release in the US. Haven’t seen it yet.

    It’s coming out next week here as well; it’s not uncommon for smaller films to get advanced wolrdwide release dates but this is quite early indeed.

    I’ve read somewhere that the music has elements of bebop so it might be Danny having fun just for the giggles. Anyway, there’s a Weepy Donuts track, all is well.
