Remember that brief little spurt when it seemed like composer Danny Elfman couldn't get along with anybody? Well, he must have gotten over whatever chip was on his shoulder, as he has recently been picked up by Warner Bros. Pictures to put together the score for
Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins. I can't think why, as "duh-duh-duh-duhduh" has worked fine so far.
Elfman Composed for Terminator Salvation
The good people at MTV Movies Blog have confirmed with Elfman that he has just begun working on Terminator Salvation.
“I just started yesterday,” Elfman told MTV News from the red carpet of the Critics’ Choice Awards. The Academy Award nominated composer from films like “Good Will Hunting,” “The Corpse Bride” and “Batman” indicated that the original “Terminator” theme by composer Brad Fiedel was not in use yet; nor is there mandate to incorporate the classic symphonic hook. He did, however, leave the door open for its appearance.
“I think if it comes up and it seems appropriate, we will [use it],” Elman said. “And if it doesn’t, we [won't]. I never really know what to expect when I begin other than just kind of get into it and have fun. Especially a movie like “T4” – just have fun. So that’s what I intend to do.”
Five bucks the original Terminator theme finds its way into the film. It would be sacrilege not to use it.
Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins opens to theaters on May 22nd, 2009.
