Despite suggestions that he’d been nailed down to pen the score for the new “Superman” movie, composer Hans Zimmer tells The Hollywood Reporter that he won’t be making music with Zack Snyder.
Zimmer, who worked with “Man of Steel” producer Christopher Nolan on “Inception” and “The Dark Knight” and is expected to play conductor on “Dark Knight Rises”, says the internet rumours are false. The reason it’s only now being debunked? Zimmer’s publicist was Ronni Chasen and… well, you know.
THR: The internet is buzzing with rumors that you’ve signed on to Zack Snyder’s Superman project. Any truth to that?
Hans Zimmer: You know, it’s like some dirty quote taken out of context. Let’s just be absolutely straight here: I have never in my life met Zack Snyder. I think I need to give him a ring. But here’s the thing: No Ronni [Chasen]. Suddenly all sorts of stuff starts flowing around with no warning.
THR: So if Ronni was still around this probably wouldn’t be happening?
Zimmer: No! Absolutely not! You know, I can’t even remember ever talking about Superman. It’s a little bit, you know, it’s a little bit like “guilty by association” isn’t it?
THR: Because of Batman?
Zimmer: I met Chris Nolan once and he knows Zack Snyder and therefore I’m doing Superman. You know that’s all it is.
THR: It may stem from the fact a lot of people would like to see you take that project. Based on the Batman films.
Zimmer: How can I say it: My heart belongs to Batman. I wouldn’t even know how to go and give voice to it. I haven’t thought about it.
THR: Not to mention following in the footsteps of John Williams.
Zimmer: Right! John Williams, the greatest living composer — full stop. And that happens to be one of his greatest themes. So no. And I’m not thinking of rewriting Beethoven’s ninth either. It just sounds like a thankless task, you know? So that’s unequivocally a no. I have never spoken with Zack Snyder.
