Composer Michael Giacchino Scoring Matt Reeves' Let Me In
I feel like all we've been talking about this last week is all things Matt Reeves' Let Me In, from a trailer to a poster to even some comparison photos. I wish this news would have arrived in the earlier in the year, but it just hit now, and it's definitely worth mentioning. The Playlist points out that Oscar winning (it's so great to say that) composer Michael Giacchino has announced on his website that he'll be scoring Let Me In, the vampire thriller remake/re-adaptation of Let the Right One In. He's also scoring J.J. Abrams' new TV series "Undercovers" and he's set to score Andrew Stanton's John Carter of Mars by its release sometime in 2012.
This is exciting news because I think Giacchino is one of the best composers working today and Let Me In is one movie I'm hoping lives up to the original in every sense. If someone as talented as Giacchino is scoring, then that makes me even more excited to see (and hear) it. I'll admit when I first heard that rock song in the trailer I was a bit concerned we were going to get another one of these trendy pop rock soundtracks, but I'm much happier knowing Giacchino is scoring. There's just something about his scores that's always wonderful to hear. As far as we know, Overture Films still has Let Me In scheduled for release on October 1st this fall.
