Film score composer Hans Zimmer, who has worked with Christopher Nolan on his Batman trilogy will be doing the same for Zack Snyder's big budget reboot Superman: Man of Steel says THR.
Zimmer makes an interesting pick given that Snyder has previously used Tyler Bates for all of his live-action films: Dawn Of The Dead, 300, Watchmen, and Sucker Punch. Makes me think that Nolan has greater imput as producer on the film than anyone involved would be free to admit...In 2010 Zimmer admitted that his heart belonged to Bats and that following in the footsteps of John Williams who composed the iconic music for Richard Donner's Superman would be a "thankless task"
Though highly unlikely I would love it if Snyder were to use Willliams' Main Title for MOS ala Superman Returns.. it is the character
MOS stars Henry Cavill Amy Adams Michael Shannon Kevin Costner Diane Lane Antje Traue Christopher Meloni Harry Lennix Laurence Fishburne Russell Crowe and Ayelet Zurer. Bradley Cooper is said to be in talks to make a cameo appearance as Lex Luthor as a set-up for sequels. But that's not been confirmed. Emmy-winning actor Richard Schiff will play Dr. Hamilton. Cooper Timberline and Dylan Sprayberry both play young Clark Kent at various ages in the film. Jadin Gould is a young Lana Lang.
David S. Goyer wrote the first screenplay draft based on a story he concocted with Christopher. His bro Jonah Nolan taking a crack at the task as well Kurt Johnstad did rewrites
Charles Roven, Emma Thomas Deborah Snyder, and Nolan will be producers on the film.
MOS flies into theaters June 14th 2013.
