There’s a rumor going around the web today about Marion Cotillard playing Talia Al Ghul and Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing Roman Sionis in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES but that rumor has been DEBUNKED and marked fake so I’m not going to post it here. So instead, I turn to MTV which recently chatted with the great composer Hans Zimmer who’s nominated this year for his score for Inception, even though some argued that the piece was not entirely original because he used Edith Piaf’s “Non, je ne regrette rien”, sneaky, sneaky.. well, whether that’s true or not, Zimmer is still da man!
When asked if he’s written some notes down for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES score, he didn’t want to answer it but he was willing to say this much..
“There’s definitely a D minor in it,” Zimmer responded, warming up. “Absolutely. We’ve got some D minor going on. No, we are thinking hard about that one right now. That’s going to be extraordinary.”
“No, I’m not going to say,”
“The one thing I can tell you is that it’s going to be a lot more epic. Extraordinarily epic.”
“I don’t know, it’s like, ‘What’s epic these days?’ I think there’s something in the core of the story that allows you to get the music much bigger and much more sort of, iconic,”
“I’m not going to tell you!”
What do you think would be considered an ‘extraordinarily epic’ score for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES? What should Zimmer do differently this time around?
Any film score aficionado out there?
