Arnold's out, Newman's in - but don't feel too bad for David Arnold - he's scoring the 2012 Olympics!

American composer Thomas Newman will be scoring the new James Bond film, "Skyfall", due out later this year. It will be his first 007 adventure.

Newman has been a long time collaborator with "Skyfall" helmer Sam Mendes, having scored four of the directors other films: "American Beauty" (1999), "Road to Perdition" (2002) [which also starred Daniel Craig], "Jarhead" (2005) and "Revolutionary Road" (2008).

I have just seen this news! Where the fuck have I been?

I like Arnold but don't mind a new composer. I remember Arnold, in a dvd extra about score, saying that his favourite part of doing Bond is using the theme. He said having the theme turn up in action scenes is what makes a Bond film (I'm paraphrasing). Then he was asked not to do this in the Daniel Craig films. He could have turned the gigs down, but I think he did it because he really does enjoy scoring Bond.
