Composer David Arnold, who scored five consecutive James Bond films from 'Tomorrow Never Dies' to 'Quantum of Solace' was interviewed this week by Variety and asked about possible involvement in Bond 25.
Director Cary J. Fukunaga has worked with several different composers in the past, including Marcelo Zarvos (“Sin Nombre”), Dario Marianelli (“Jane Eyre”), Dan Romer (“Beasts of No Nation”) and T Bone Burnett (“True Detective”), so no single musician pops out as an obvious choice – which may leave it open for Broccoli and Wilson to suggest a familiar name.
“A lot of things have to happen before something like that [the composer] gets decided upon, and I’m not sure they’ve started thinking about it,” Arnold said. “These things are incredibly complicated.
“It’s flattering to be asked, because that means people think you might be half-decent enough to have a go at it. I have a huge debt to them [the Bond producers] and I still love the character. I was as happy watching the last two as I was writing the previous five,” he adds. “So it’s a win-win for me.”
