Danny Elfman, the man known for creating the orchestrated
music for a good portion of comic book films along with the TV series Desperate
Housewives, has announced that he will be leaving Spider-Man 3.
Elfman Takes Music from Spider-Man
I cannot imagine what it is going to be like to
have to watch the opening sequence to Spider-Man 3 without the infamous
comic book style music from Danny Elfman. However, no matter how much I,
and other fans, would like him to remain, this is the latest report:
Looks like Elfman will follow suit with John Dykstra (who left Spidey3 earlier this year) and take his leave from the Spider-Man franchise. Composer Danny Elfman has cued up much work for 2007 (the year of Spider-Man 3's anticipated release), including the rumor of scoring the movie adaptation of the adventures of the superheroine: Wonder Woman.
After much creative differences between Sam Raimi and Danny Elfman
during the post-production of Spider-Man 2, Raimi brought in other composers to complete the unfinished score. One of those composers was Christopher Young, and according to sources close to Raimi and Elfman, it appears that Young will be hired for the job. (on Spidey3)
