Last year, Arrival composer Jóhann Jóhannsson joined Denis Villeneuves Blade Runner 2049 to create the score for the upcoming sequel. Now, as the film comes closer to its October release date, two more composers are joining the project to assist him: Benjamin Wallfisch (Hidden Figures, It), and Hans Zimmer (Inception, The Dark Knight).
According to Studio Ciné Live (via Entertainment,ie), Villeneuve says that Jóhannsson isnt leaving the project, but that the two composers are coming on to help. It’s hard to get to Vangelis’ angle. We have Johann’s breathtaking atmospheric sounds, but I needed other things, and Hans helped us.” Both Zimmer and Wallfisch both coming off of their latest collaboration with Christopher Nolan, Dunkirk.
