Carter Burwell Scoring Todd Haynes' 'Carol' & Danny Elfman Bound To 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'

Although we have broadened our horizons somewhat, the intersection of music and film is something still very much important to us. To that end, we were very excited to hear news that two of our favorite composers would be tackling new projects.

Usually the preferred composer for Spike Jonze and the Coen Brothers, last year saw composer Carter Burwell miss out on scoring duties for the filmmakers’ latest efforts in favor of musicians — indie band Arcade Fire subbing in for “Her” and T. Bone Burnett leading a group of cast-members and musicians for a period-authentic folk soundtrack in “Inside Llewyn Davis.” Burwell, however, will get his auteur fix with “I’m Not There” director Todd Haynes. The composer has signed on to score Haynes’ first big-screen film since 2007’s ambitious Bob Dylan biopic “I’m Not There,” the Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara-starring “Carol.” Shooting begins in spring in New York and London with The Weinstein Company handling distribution but no release date has been set.

Meanwhile, his last few at-bats may have been underwhelming ("Epic," "Oz The Great And Powerful," "Promised Land" though he did just tune up "American Hustle"), but Danny Elfman still has a great body of work behind him so any news of him working piques our interest. And certainly we're curious now that Elfman has been tied up in the grasp of blockbuster-in-waiting adaptation of “Fifty Shades Of Grey” and will score the film for “Nowhere Boy” director Sam Taylor-Johnson. The film is shooting now and set for release on February 13th, 2015. [Film Music Reporter]
