Giacchino On For Apes Soundtrack
He'll see Dawn on Reeves' planet

Michael Giacchino

Michael Giacchino, fresh off writing music to warp by for Star Trek Into Darkness, has revealed on Twitter that he will be scoring Matt Reeves' Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes - and that he will be dressed as a monkey in a tuxedo to record the score. We believe at least one of these statements.

It's no big surprise that the Oscar-winning composer would choose this particular film: he's worked with Reeves before on Let Me In and elements for Cloverfield, and of course Reeves is an auld mate of J.J. Abrams, who Giacchino's worked with regularly over the years on two Star Trek scores and two Mission: Impossibles as well as lots of TV stuff.

Frankly, since he's one of the best composers out there, we're delighted when Giacchino signs on to anything. Given that he's recently emphatically denied plans to do Star Wars: Episode VII, pointing out that that franchise is still John Williams' baby, it's good to hear what's up next. Not that he's hurting for work anyway: Giacchino's also set to score the Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending and Brad Bird's Tomorrowland.

Now we just have to persuade him to make good on those monkey-suit promises...
