Just saw this on Deadline:Quote:In fact I was talking to composer Danny Elfman at the Alice Through The Looking Glass premiere last month and he had just spent his first day spotting [ The Girl on the Train ] for his music score. Elfman told me that after seeing the movie he decided Blunt’s performance was so powerful he would limit or even remove some of the music he originally planned for her scenes. “I told the director Tate Taylor that she is just too good. She doesn’t need it, which is a rare thing for me to do in composing films,” he said. [Producer Marc] Platt has that movie for October, Ang Lee’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk for Sony in November, and the original movie musical La La Land from Lionsgate in December starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.June 18, 2016 at 8:04 pm #58293
Oh my goodness this is exciting.June 18, 2016 at 8:29 pm #58294
Trailer looks unlike anything Danny has ever scored.
So exciting.June 20, 2016 at 7:17 pm #58296
He seems to be entering that James Newton Howard – late early to mid ’90s phase of scoring adult thrillersJune 20, 2016 at 7:37 pm #58297
Here, I’ll say it : I don’t care much for thriller Elfman…July 18, 2016 at 6:48 pm #58338
No Elfman credit on the new poster…
Hope there’s not been any trouble.July 18, 2016 at 7:14 pm #58339
You have better eyes than I do.July 20, 2016 at 5:13 pm #58340
Here’s a bigger version. Definitely no Elfman credit, which is really weird no? I wonder if he’s being/has been replaced.July 21, 2016 at 1:33 pm #58342
Could be the deal isn’t signed in time for that teaser poster, or Henry Jackman will be scoring itJuly 21, 2016 at 6:07 pm #58344
I don’t know anything about this sort of stuff but surely that’s sorted way in advance? The movie was spotted two months ago.
If he has left the project hopefully Taylor goes back to Newman. No Jackman!July 26, 2016 at 11:39 am #58352
Elfman crew starting to add this movie to their resumes and whatnot. Crisis averted!July 26, 2016 at 8:04 pm #58353
All aboard the “Girl on the Train” Hype Train !July 27, 2016 at 1:42 am #58354
Officially makes this my favorite score ever. LOLJuly 27, 2016 at 3:55 pm #58356July 27, 2016 at 4:50 pm #58357
Yeah that’s a totally appropriate image of Danny…August 3, 2016 at 4:48 pm #58359
Recording this week in New York.

I remember Desplat talking about recording in New York once. I think it was for Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.August 4, 2016 at 2:13 am #58360
I have no idea what’s going on in that photo.August 24, 2016 at 1:52 pm #58273August 26, 2016 at 2:14 pm #58274
Well I think that just about confirms it.September 16, 2016 at 7:33 pm #68371

What was it like collaborating with Danny Elfman on the score?
Tate Taylor: It was a dream. He’s such a master and his work speaks for itself. We had a blast. We took chances, and I told him to go as crazy as he wanted. He’s fantastic and became a great friend.September 24, 2016 at 5:54 pm #58332

Danny on the loose is usually a good thing.September 25, 2016 at 2:08 pm #58412
Breaking my self-imposed internet lockdown to say that the score is apparently very electronic ala Trent Reznor and that Luke Evans was gushing about the score on an interview I saw on tv about a week ago.
Also, the album has an ‘explicit lyrics’ warning. Which might explain why Elfman was recording with that heavy metal artist.
