STAR TREK Composer To Score JURASSIC WORLD
Universal has picked Michael Giacchino to compose the score for Jurassic World. He's best known for scoring J.J. Abrams' two Star Trek films. Share your thoughts!
Variety is reporting, composer Michael Giacchino has signed on to score Universal's Jurassic World. He is best known for his work on J.J. Abram's Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, Lost, and Super 8. He's also contributed his musical talents to upcoming films as well as Lost Tomorrowland and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Of course working on this film is a bit more significant than most as he'll have to perform in the shadow of John Williams. The legendary composer worked on the first two Jurassic Park films and film's theme is held in high regard. Giacchino is no stranger to the material. One of his first gigs was scoring the video game based on Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park: The Lost World. Perhaps that will offer a sample of what's to come. You can listen to that below.
“My first stop-motion movies at 9-years-old involved stories where dinosaurs and men were trapped together on long-lost islands or far away planets,” Giacchino said. “My first composing job was to write the score for the Steven Spielberg-produced video game based on the film ‘The Lost World,’ which was one of the earliest console video games to feature an original orchestral score. Having the chance to work on this new movie with the talented director Colin Trevorrow is an incredible opportunity to bring full circle the journey of dinosaurs and film that started in my backyard over 30 years ago.”
Jurassic World is being directed by Colin Trevorrow, from a screenplay written by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. The story is set 22 years after the events of the first film. The cast includes: Chris Pratt ("Guardians of the Galaxy"), Irrfan Khan ("The Amazing Spider-Man"), Vincent D’Onofrio ("Men In Black"), Bryce Dallas Howard ("Spider-Man 3"), Ty Simpkins ("Iron Man 3"), Judy Greer ("Two And A Half Men"), Katie McGrath ("Dracula"), Lauren Lapkus ("Orange is the New Black") and Nick Robinson ("The Kings Of Summer").
