‘World War Z’ Finds Its Composer

Posted by , on December 31, 2011 at 2:06 pm 

We’re still about a year out from World War Z, so it might be a smidge early to get news of this sort — but, nevertheless, FilmMusicReporter (via FirstShowing) tells us that Marc Forster‘s film has found its composer. The man hired for the job is none other than Oscar nominee Marco Beltrami, a fellow best known for work on The Hurt Locker, 3:10 to Yuma, and that prequel to The Thing you’ve already forgotten about.

The same story also reports that he’s signed for A Good Day to Die Hard — no surprise, given his duties on Live Free — and Alex ProyasParadise Lost; the latter hit a production snag earlier this month, but I’m now thinking that it’s been smoothed out. (I’m guessing that’s the case, at least. I don’t know why a project with recent budget problems would pick someone else up unless they were no longer prevalent.)

None of his musical output jumps out to me — probably because I can’t remember half of the entries on his filmography that I’ve actually seen — but said output has been in genre fare, which I’d quickly label World War Z as. He makes sense in that regard, right? Someone agree with me here.

Starring Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, Elyes Gabel, and Matthew Fox, World War Z will open on December 21st, 2012.

Does this hire affect your hopes for World War Z in any way?
