Danny Elfman, the prolific composer behind movies such as Edward Scissorhands recently gave a Q&A at an event to celebrating the composers 25-year career in collaboration with director Tim Burton. Elfman revealed his plans for the year and that he is in advanced negations to score Lionsgate's The Hunger Games, [as well as possibly teaming up once again with Sam Raimi to score the upcoming prequel Oz: The Great And Powerful.] Hit the jump for the details.
Speaking with Buzzine, Elfman explained what this year has in store for him, and why it’s the busiest he has ever been:
"I have five films booked, which is the most I’ve ever had in the future, which is weird. I’ve never been able to see more than two or three ahead, and I don’t like, actually, having my future all booked up. It’s a two-Tim Burton year, and a Sam Raimi, so there’s three. I’m not going to say no to Tim and Sam -- that’s already three movies. And then Men In Black, well of course I don’t want somebody else to do number 3, so there was another one. And then another one called The Hunger Games popped up, which seemed like a really interesting thing. Those Tim Burton films, Dark Shadows and Frankenweenie, are both due out in 2012, as is Men In Black III, which is currently being filmed."
