Giacchino to score Jurassic World
Michael Giacchino is set to create the soundtrack of Jurassic World.
The Oscar-winning composer, who has provided music for films such as Up, The Incredibles, Star Trek and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, has signed on to score the fourth film in the Jurassic Park dinosaur franchise.
The 46-year-old, who won an Oscar for his work on Disney/Pixar's Up and received a nod for the music on Ratatouille, is tipped to weave in influences from John Williams' Jurassic Park score, as he did with the music for JJ Abrams' Star Trek and Star Trek: Into Darkness.
The latest film marks a reunion between Steven Spielberg and Michael, as one of the musician's first jobs was on The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Warpath: Jurassic Park video games, which were produced by the filmmaker.
Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt, Vincent D'Onofrio, Irrfan Khan and Omar Sy are to star in Jurassic World, which is set 2 years after the events of Jurassic Park.
Jurassic World, which will be directed by Colin Trevorrow from a script he co-wrote with Derek Connolly, will be released in 2015.
Legendary Pictures founder Thomas Tull, the studio behind it, revealed: "They're shooting right now. (I couldn't turn down) the opportunity to work with Steven Spielberg, (producer) Frank Marshall and Colin. Jurassic Park was one of my favourite movies of all time, so I'm very, very excited."
