Re: The Danny Elfman Appreciation Thread
There are murmurs that Elfman is indeed scoring the Alice in Wonderland sequel 'Through the Looking Glass' but there is nothing concrete on that yet.
Here's one of the Newton brothers talking about their collaboration with Elfman on 'Somnia'
BD: One of your next projects is another film with Mike Flanagan, called SOMNIA – only this time, you’re also teaming up with the famous composer Danny Elfman. How did that come about, and how exactly is your collaborative process going to work? (Also, that must be pretty exciting!)
AG: It is indeed very exciting. Words are not appropriate in describing it. We’ve been collaborating on thematic elements lately. After we’ve got themes nailed down, we’ll lean into textures and applying themes to the rest of the film.
TS: It’s very exciting. He’s brilliant. We’re both big fans of his. I remember listening to EDWARD SCISSORHANDS (1991) in high school. It was just breathtaking. It still is. We met Danny at the Toronto International Film Festival. He came to the OCULUS premiere.
Also Elfman won three BMI Music awards for American Hustle, Epic and Mr Peabody and Sherman.
