Avatar score hints revealed: Alien-language vocals?
scifiwire.com: To no one’s surprise, James Cameron’s Titanic and Aliens composer, James Horner, is scoring the upcoming sci-fi epic Avatar, but Movie Score magazine offers up a few tidbits about it, including the fact that the movie will run nearly three hours.
♦The score will feature vocals in the Na’vi language.
♦The score will include traditional orchestral elements, as well as electronic and acoustic rhythmic elements.
♦The score will blanket the movie: “The film will run the better part of three hours, and there will likely be nearly as much score,” Mike Knobloch, the executive vice president of Fox Music, told the magazine.
I want to hear that score! What do you think about the Avatar score?
Pleasantville guy may direct Spidey spinoff Venom
scifiwire.com: Now comes word, via Variety‘s Michael Fleming, that Sony’s Columbia Pictures may be turning to Gary Ross to rewrite the script and maybe even direct. Ross (writer/director of Seabiscuit and Pleasantville) also reportedly rewrote the script for Sam Raimi’s upcoming Spider-Man 4:
I am hearing that the studio is in talks with Ross to helm the Spidey-spinoff Venom, and rewrite the script.Ross will begin writing the script as soon as he completes the Spider-Man film.
While Venom showed up in the last Spidey installment, the intention is to start from scratch. Topher Grace played him in the last picture but the role will likely be recast.
This is mostly good news, particularly if you liked Pleasantville, which featured Spidey star Tobey Maguire, and if you weren’t a big fan of either Spidey 3 (which we weren’t) or Grace’s interpretation of Eddie Brock/Venom. Grace, in any case, seems to have moved on (to Predators).
I hope they do something better with venom. It be great to see more about him, I know a few people fans of venom and wouldn’t think twice to run and go see this movie 😉 What do you think of the new director? Are you a venom fan?
