Hans Zimmer, the composer of “Gladiator,” “Inception” and “The Da Vinci Code”, is already believed to be working on “No Time to Die,” the 25th film in the 007 franchise starring Daniel Craig.
Variety reports this based on multiple sources. A spokesperson for MGM, Bond’s studio, had no comment on the matter.
Rumors have been swirling for weeks about the status of music for the film, now in post-production in London.
Speculation has been that Zimmer – who also has “Wonder Woman 1984,” “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Dune” on his plate for 2020 – may need to enlist help to finish on time, as the film is slated for an April 10 release and recording will likely need to be completed by mid-February.
Zimmer could not be reached for comment, Variety reports.
