Danny Elfman supposedly had a fallout with director Sam Raimi after Spider-Man 2 scoring experience went sour for the 4-time Oscar nominated composer but it seems like they’ve buried the hatchet because via theplaylist, Elfman has agreed to score Raimi’s upcoming Disney movie, OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, starring James Franco. This has been confirmed by movies.com. But that’s not all that’s going to be on busy Elfman’s calendar..
Buzzine attended Q&A with Elfman who revealed that he’s in talks to score THE HUNGER GAMES adaptation, starring Jennifer Lawrence.
He’ll also be scoring FRANKENWEENIE and DARK SHADOWS, both directed by his long time collaborator, Tim Burton
And Elfman is also scoring MEN IN BLACK III
I had planned on taking off the end of the year, writing for myself, and then taking more time next year. And as it turns out, I have five films booked, which is the most I’ve ever had in the future, which is weird. I’ve never been able to see more than two or three ahead, and I don’t like, actually, having my future all booked up. So it’s a very weird thing because it’s like, “Oh, I see. Fourteen months of my life is already totally spoken for,” and it’s scary, but it just happened. It’s a two-Tim Burton year, and a Sam Raimi, so there’s three. I’m not going to say no to Tim and Sam — that’s already three movies. And then Men in Black, well of course I don’t want somebody else to do number 3, so there was another one. And then another one called The Hunger Games popped up, which seemed like really interesting thing. Different — and different catches my attention in a way that’s like, “Oh, I can’t ever pass up a chance to do something different.” So that deal’s not even closed, it may not even happen, but we’re well along with that.
