Watch: Ridley Scott & Hans Zimmer Talk Collaboration on ‘Thelma & Louise’ In Vintage Interview

Christopher Nolan may stand as Hans Zimmer’s choice of cinematic collaborator these days, but for a good stretch of more than a decade, Zimmer and Ridley Scott cut a string of iconic projects, starting with 1989’s “Black Rain” through to ventures like “Gladiator” and “Black Hawk Down.” The 1991 classic, “Thelma and Louise,” proved one of their early successes on that timeline, and now a rare interview with both men reflects their approach toward the unique material on show.

Thelma & Louise Ridley Scott Hans Zimmer

Christopher Nolan may stand as Hans Zimmer’s choice of cinematic collaborator these days, but for a good stretch of more than a decade, Zimmer and Ridley Scott cut a string of iconic projects, starting with 1989’s “Black Rain” through to ventures like “Gladiator” and “Black Hawk Down.” The 1991 classic, “Thelma and Louise,” proved one of their early successes on that timeline, and now a rare interview with both men reflects their approach toward the unique material on show.

With Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis in the lead, the film served as a showcase for really all involved -- particularly when it came to the soundtrack, composed by Zimmer and featuring guitar arrangements from musician Peter Haycock (himself responsible for the score to Carl Franklin’s neo-noir “One False Move”). In the clip, Zimmer discusses creating his work with Haycock -- as well as “something unobtainable” and “boisterous” for the soundtrack overall -- while Scott describes his ability to “talk pictures to Hans” as the source of their success.

Check out the clip below, and start to wonder when these two will hopefully get back together again. In the meantime, composer Marc Streitenfeld -- Zimmer’s apprentice -- has filled the post dutifully.
