Composer Carter Burwell dropped out of “Thor: Dark World” citing creative differences. Burwell has scored every Spike Jonze film, “Twilight”, the upcoming “The Fifth Estate”, “Seven Psychopaths” and more. It’s a shame he dropped out, it would have been fun to see how he would have scored the film. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Christopher Eccleston and more.

Big Star Wars person coming back

This one was a good problem to have. With J.J. Abrams’ “Star Wars Episode VII” coming out, a big question was who should score the film? John Williams, of course, did all the Star Wars themes for George Lucas. Michael Giacchino is a long time collaborator with Abrams and his work includes “Star Trek” and “Up”. Who would you choose?

According to Williams he’s going to be ready to return to the franchise. Hard to argue this since Williams may be the most famous composer alive, but maybe they should keep things changing?
