New composer for King Kong
17-Oct-2005 - James Newton Howard is replacing Howard Shore as the composer for Peter
Jackson's KING KONG.
Jackson stated publicly: "I have greatly enjoyed my collaborations with Howard Shore, whose musical themes made immeasurable contributions to
'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy. During the last few weeks, Howard and I came to realize that we had differing creative aspirations for the score of 'King Kong.' Rather than waste time arguing with a friend and trying to unify our points of view, we decided amicably to let another composer score the film. I'm looking forward to working with James Newton Howard,
a composer whose work I've long admired, and I thank Howard Shore, whose talent is surpassed only by his graciousness."
