In news that won’t be entirely unsurprising given his previous collaborations with director Cary Joji Fukunaga, it has been announced that composer Dan Romer has signed on to score the as-yet-untitled Bond 25.
Music producer and composer Romer previously worked with Fukunaga on 2015’s Beasts of No Nation and the Netflix series Maniac. His other credits include Beasts of the Southern Wild, Finders Keepers, The Little Hours, Jim; The James Foley Story, Atypical, The Good Doctor and Far Cry 5.
Romer takes over composing duties on the Bond franchise from Thomas Newman, who scored 2012’s Skyfall and 2015’s Spectre.
Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
Bond 25 is set for release in the UK on April 3rd 2020 and in the U.S. on April 8th 2020 and stars Daniel Craig (James Bond), Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), Rory Kinnear (Tanner), Léa Seydoux (Madeleine Swann), Ben Whishaw (Q) and Jeffrey Wright (Felix Leiter), while new additions include Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody), Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049), Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel), Billy Magnussen (Velvet Buzzsaw), Dali Benssalah (A Faithful Man) and David Dencik (Top of the Lake).
