    I hope that WB will use John William's classic themes from Superman: The Movie for the new Superman film. I actually don't think ANYTHING could be a worthy substitute for the original music. Perhaps a petition would convince WB...?

    They probably won't have a score... it'll probably be the souless quasi-rap that they manufacture for so many movies these days[​IMG]

    Yeah, it will probably be filled with "Playstation" techno music. [​IMG]

    Hmm, I don't suppose that John Williams would be interested in scoring the new movie?

    Less of all the disturbing pessimism, you guys. [​IMG]

    Oh, I wasn't being pessimistic, I was being realistic in this "gain the teen dollar at any cost" market.

    They will probably use some stupid souless pop song like in Spiderman.

    I was actually thinking of this topic a weeks back when I was considering the upcoming remake. Who in god's name would have the stones to follow up one of the most recognizable movie themes of all time, written by one of the greats? Perhaps some sort of compromise could be made, much in the same vein as Scorsese's Cape Fear remake, wherein Elmer Bernstein reused and remixed Bernard Herrmann's score for the original film, along with the unused portions of music for Hitchcock's Torn Curtain. Time will tell.

    Since the movie is so blasphemous, I HOPE it won't use a single cue from John Williams' best score (OK, Star Wars and Empire are probably tied [​IMG] )

    Three Doors Down
    Five For Fighting
    Spin Doctors
    Donovan
    Sugarhill Gang
    and Rex Hamilton as Abraham Lincoln

    "Oh, I wasn't being pessimistic, I was being realistic in this "gain the teen dollar at any cost" market."

    Especially with the people theyre considering for the part.

    JonZ, where did you hear that Josh Hartnett was rumored for the part? I've heard Brendan Fraser and the like, but not him. C'mon, Fraser's good looking enough...[​IMG]

    Dark Horizons had a scoop last week with a bit of Superman news. It also gave like 3 others names as well. I looked them up on Yahoo and it wasnt good. Josh Harnett has been mentioned a few times recently though, not just at DH. I cant remember the sources though, I visit so many sites a day.

    I still want Jude Law. With black hair, he'd be the perfect, iconic Steve Rude Superman.
