‘Godzilla’ reboot gets ‘Argo’ and ‘Harry Potter’ composer Alexandre Desplat

Alexandre Desplat, the composer of scores for The King’s Speech and Argo, as well as for Moonrise Kingdom and both Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows among others, will be writing the music for next year’s big budget remake of Godzilla.

Film School Reporter (via First Showing) revealed the news.

In an interview the composer did with First Showing to promote The Tree of Life, Desplat said the following:

“I just try to keep myself in a very agitated musical world. But the key is not to do twice in a row the same kind of film. And if you look at my filmography, I never do twice… It’s rare that in a year I would do several romantic comedies or several thrillers or several action movies, which I don’t do much anyway.”

Godzilla appears to be an exception as director Gareth Edwards attempts to bring the classic monster back to the pop culture mainstream: an epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

The film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe and Juliette Binoche and Bryan Cranston, it’s scheduled for release May 16, 2014.
