‘No Time To Die’: Hans Zimmer Takes Over As Composer On The James Bond Film

Hans Zimmer has taken over composing duties from Dan Romer for the next James Bond film, No Time to Die.

Variety reports Hans Zimmer is already believed to be working on the score for No Time to Die, the latest entry in the James Bond film series and Daniel Craig’s final outing as 007. Previously announced composer Dan Romer, who previously worked with No Time to Die director Cary Fukunaga on projects including Beasts of No Nation, is said to have been dismissed Eon Productions following “creative differences.”

According to the outlet, Hans Zimmer is rumored to need assistance in order to complete the No Time to Die score on time and recording will likely need to be finished by mid-February. Unconfirmed reports suggest past Hans Zimmer collaborators Benjamin Wallfisch or Lorne Balfe may be required to join the latest James Bond film due to the short time frame.

Hans Zimmer reportedly couldn’t be reached for comment while Benjamin Wallfisch or Lorne Balfe declined to respond. The outlet adds that a spokesperson for MGM, the studio behind James BondBond, had no comment on the story while a spokesperson for Eon did not immediately return its request for comment.

In addition to the upcoming James Bond film, Hans Zimmer is known for composing the acclaimed scores for The Lion King, The Dark Knight trilogy, four Pirates of Caribbean films, and many more. No Time to Die now marks Hans Zimmer’s fourth project for the year 2020, with Wonder Woman 1984, Top Gun: Maverick, and Dune already on his plate. His addition to No Time to Die marks the first time a composer has been replaced on a James Bond film during post-production in the franchise’s 58-year history.
