Hans Zimmer to score NTTD, Variety says

Hans Zimmer

Hans Zimmer is the new composer for No Time to Die, Variety reported late Monday night.

The entertainment news outlet cited “multiple sources” without identifying them. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the Bond franchise’s home studio, declined to comment to Variety.

Zimmer has scored various major films, including a number of movies directed by Christopher Nolan. He has been nominated for 11 Oscars with one win.

Zimmer also is listed as executive music producer for Eon Productions’ non-Bond spy film The Rhythm Section, to be released late this month.

He replaces Dan Romer, who Eon said in August would score No Time to Die. Romer previously had worked on some projects with director Cary Fukunaga.

Variety cited reports “so far without confirmation” that “have suggested” Zimmer may have to work with another composer to complete the movie. Variety didn’t identify what those reports were.

Zimmer runs Remote Control Productions, a music company with a large roster of affiliated composers. One of them, Steve Mazzaro, scored The Rhythm Section for Eon. Another, Benjamin Wallisfisch, shared the scoring credit with Zimmer for Blade Runner 2049.
