Does anyone know if Elfman is part of the new MIB reboot that’s coming out this summer?
Apparently, no one appears as a composer yet…February 5, 2019 at 7:35 am #98792
I doubt it honestly. I even doubt they will bring back any of his themes…February 5, 2019 at 6:36 pm #98793
Actually Men In Black International is more of a spin off than a reboot. Emma Thompson even returns as Agent O. Anyways I don’t think Elfman will return as composer because I’ve heard Rick Baker didn’t return to do the make up either. Don’t know if it was either because Baker wasn’t approached or interested. So it wouldn’t surprise me if Gray avoids hiring Elfman as well.February 5, 2019 at 8:43 pm #98794
Hasn’t Rick Baker retired?
The first trailer used a bit of Elfman’s theme. His next (announced) movie isn’t due out until 2020 as Dumbo was recorded in October. I think it’s possible that he’s back.February 7, 2019 at 6:30 pm #98795
Correct Baker announced his retirement about four years ago, but I’m still skeptical about Sony and Gray bringing Elfman on board.March 10, 2019 at 9:31 pm #98823
Well is this confirmation enough? 🙂

Co-composed with Chris Bacon!

I hope Elfman’s actively involved and it’s not the ‘Here’s my music for the other movies – off you go’ situation that seemed to happen with Jason Bourne.March 10, 2019 at 11:30 pm #98827
My guess is that it will mostly be a Bacon score with some light Elfman contributions to maintain his legacy on the franchise.
Following my opening statement above, watch me being proven wrong in 4 months.March 11, 2019 at 2:27 am #98841
So I guess this means Elfman probably won’t be heavily involved with the score. Elfman will probably come up with the themes, while Bacon will be utilizing ’em as he’s taking over scoring duties. I hope that isn’t the case and that Elfman is more involved, but I don’t know with the & between both names most likely means Bacon will be contributing quite a bit for MIB:I.

I imagine/hope that the pitch was that Elfman would do what he can and oversee the rest. Can’t imagine Sony approaching Elfman and then being happy with getting Chris Bacon instead (no offence intended).April 20, 2019 at 10:10 pm #98931
Music department consists of Elfman regulars so far. Fingers crossed.April 21, 2019 at 10:14 am #98932
