Danny Elfman is Scoring Michel Gondry's The Green Hornet
Great news for fans of Danny Elfman - the legendary composer will apparently be scoring Michel Gondry's The Green Hornet starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Cameron Diaz and Christoph Waltz. I received an email earlier tonight linking to Film Score Daily's Top Forty Composer Countdown where, in the #2 spot, they list all kinds of details about Elfman. At the end, they mention that "he returns to the superhero genre with The Green Hornet." This is the first time we've heard anything about this and it's not confirmed by Sony yet, but Film Score Daily is a trustworthy site with a lot of inside information, so I'm fairly certain this is accurate.
Elfman last scored Milk, Terminator Salvation, and Taking Woodstock, and also has Alice in Wonderland coming up. The Green Hornet already finished shooting in December and is in post-production. Sony has slated a December 22nd, 2010 release for the film this year. So far I've been impressed by the talent that Seth Rogen and Sony have brought together for this. There's a great line-up of actors (except for Cameron Diaz) and they've got the always-genius Michel Gondry directing. I'm excited for Green Hornet primarily because I think there's almost no way it can be bad with the talent they've got. Happy to see Elfman join?
