‘Twilight’ composer Carter Burwell set to return for ‘Breaking Dawn’
Film composer Carter Burwell, who scored the original Twilight film, including “Bella’s Lullaby” that appeared on the film’s soundtrack, has signed on to score parts 1 AND 2 of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn! From IndieWire:
Coen Brothers and Spike Jonze regular collaborator Carter Burwell is set to return to the â€˜Twilightâ€™ since working on the first film to perform scoring duties for the final installment of the series, the two parter â€œTwilight: Breaking Dawn.â€
Burwell has an existing relationship with the director of the final two parts, Bill Condon, having collaborated on â€œKinseyâ€ and â€œGods And Monstersâ€ and will return to the position after Alexandre Desplat followed him for â€œNew Moonâ€ with Howard Shore stepping in for â€œEclipse.â€ Shooting began this past November with all major cast members such as Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Dakota Fanning, Michael Sheen, Anna Kendrick and Ashley Greene reprising their roles. The two parts will be shot as one project and will then be respectively released on November 18th, 2011 and November 16th, 2012. And in case you havenâ€™t do so already, check out Burwellâ€™s score for â€œTrue Grit,â€ itâ€™s ace.
As with the Twilight series’ soundtracks, the scores have been stellar as well. The powers that be have managed some amazing composing talent, and I am glad to see Burwell back on the roster.
