Horner Front Runner to Score LOTR
I picked this up from TheOneRing.com and Ringbearer. Looks like Wojciech Kilar is not
the primary candidate for composing the LOTR soundtrack. Here's the scoop straight from
the good folks over at FilmForce.net:
On a recent installment of the "FilmFreak" show on
KLSX 97.1 FM in Los Angeles, Michael De Luca from New Line indicated rumors of composer
Wojciech Kilar`s (Bram Stoker`s Dracula) attachment to the forthcoming Lord of the Rings
feature films are not well founded.
The New Line rep said Kilar`s name has indeed been brought up
in association with LOTR, but revealed New Line`s favorite to score the trilogy is James
Horner (Aliens, Braveheart, Titanic).
