A few websites claim Elfman is scoring ‘Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’ http://www.google.co.uk/#hl=en&sclient=psy-ab&q=mortal+instruments+danny+elfman&oq=mortal+instruments+danny+elfman&gs_l=hp.3…1498.10333.0.105184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.2265.14j8.22.0…1.0…1c.1.8.psy-ab.vvTeMl–Jn8&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.44697112,d.d2k&fp=1d73a3b994f65f60&biw=1366&bih=667
Another quick google search says that Yared was (is?) set to score but he wouldn’t be Yared if he didn’t have to leave for whatever reason.April 5, 2013 at 3:56 am #39100
Who’s scoring the Carrie remake, which is scheduled for release in October? That could be a promising Elfman project. Or perhaps Enders Game.April 5, 2013 at 1:34 pm #39113
Marco Beltrami is scoring Carrie and James Horner is scoring Ender’s Game.April 23, 2013 at 9:00 pm #39115
Now THIS could be interesting. Van Sant is a frontrunner to direct 50 Shades of Grey…April 7, 2014 at 4:26 pm #67851
Errol Morris’ first feature film ‘Holland, Michigan’ is gaining steam, with Naomi Watts and Bryan Cranston set to star. The script topped last year’s black list too. I’d like to see their collaboration continue.April 7, 2014 at 6:31 pm #67852
Oh man, I read that script; it’s really good. Lots of interesting and dark elements to it. Elfman would be great a great addition. Fingers crossed.April 8, 2014 at 5:49 pm #67856
Sounds great, but Morris has in fact directed a narrative feature in the past.April 8, 2014 at 8:42 pm #67859
My bad, someone brought it up in an interview and Morris didn’t correct him so I assumed it was true.April 9, 2014 at 5:37 am #67861
Well, maybe he’s trying to forget that he made it – ha!May 18, 2014 at 1:29 pm #67891
Mike Flanagan (Somnia) is directing an adaption of Stephen King’s Gerald’s Game. Gerald’s Game is very much the (less good) sister to Dolores Claiborne so I’d love to see Elfman involved.May 18, 2014 at 8:02 pm #67892
It’s quite a difficult book to adapt I think…I’ll be curious to see it, even if Elfman is not involved.March 6, 2015 at 9:53 pm #68237
Tim Burton’s go-to costume designer, Colleen Atwood, has designed the costumes for the superheroes in the TV shows Arrow, The Flash and now Supergirl. Check out the Supergirl costume here: http://i.imgur.com/Ogmmx7L.png . And I think it would be awesome if the producers hired Danny Elfman to write the theme for Supergirl. Arrow and The Flash have very generic music. It fits the show, don’t get me wrong, but it’s the same forgettable music we heard on Smallville for 10 seasons. I think it’s time they took some notes from the 1990’s Flash TV show and Batman: The Animated Series and got Elfman on board. If he’s willing to compose additional music for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, I think he would consider this as well.March 16, 2015 at 9:13 am #68271
I hope not. I hope he steers clear of action and superhero films for a while and continues to develop his more introverted drama sound. But that’s just my personal preference.October 31, 2015 at 2:54 pm #59845
Sacha Gervasi (Hitchock) and James Ponsoldt (The End of the Tour) but have thrillers coming out next year. I wonder if either is the small film Danny says he might score.
On a side note, I just read an interview with Paul Haggis and he mentioned how he really wanted Danny to score ‘Third Person’ but had to use a European composer.November 19, 2015 at 10:06 pm #59813
Two Fifty Shades sequels will be shooting back-to-back early next year and will be directed by James Foley. I’d love to hear more from Elfman in this franchise, it’s my favourite of his 2015 output.March 7, 2016 at 10:43 pm #58701
Ellen Segal, the music editor on countless movies that Elfman has scored, is working on ‘The Circle’ by James Ponsoldt (The End of the Tour). A sign that he’s involved?July 27, 2016 at 12:04 pm #58355
Guillermo Del Toro’s next film is screaming for an Elfman score.August 4, 2016 at 2:15 am #58361
An OLD SCHOOL 1985-94 era Elfman score.February 1, 2018 at 8:42 pm #98530
This sounds cool.
Sam Taylor-Johnson also has a good-sounding film preparing to film.November 1, 2018 at 7:11 pm #98702
