“Hunger Games” could be scored by Danny Elfman

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Oscar-nominated composer Danny Elfman frequently collaborates with filmmaker Tim Burton, though he also scored Sam Raimi’s massive “Spider-Man” trilogy. And now, according to reports, Elfman might try his luck with another mega-franchise that would keep him busy for four potential films.

Elfman reportedly took place in a Q&A regarding his collaborations with Burton, and revealed to patrons that he’s in talks to score Gary Ross’ adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ “The Hunger Games,” according to Buzzine.

In addition, Elfman said he’s reuniting with Raimi for the director’s upcoming “Oz, the Great and Powerful.”

“I had planned on taking off the end of the year, writing for myself, and then taking more time next year. And as it turns out, 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. So it’s a very weird thing because it’s like, ‘Oh, I see. Fourteen months of my life is already totally spoken for,’ and it’s scary, but it just happened,” Elfman said.

“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 really interesting thing. Different — and different catches my attention in a way that’s like, ‘Oh, I can’t ever pass up a chance to do something different.’ So that deal’s not even closed, it may not even happen, but we’re well along with that.”

Now I really have to read Collins’ books, because I love Elfman, and if this material is something that interests him, I know I’m going to devour it.
