Zimmer to Score Da Vinci Code

Coming Soon has it that Oscar Award winner Hans Zimmer will be handling the score for the highly anticipated "The Da Vinci Code." Zimmer is the composer of more than 100 films including "Gladiator," "The Lion King," and "Batman Begins." This will mark the second collaboration between Ron Howard and Zimmer, the first being "Backdraft."

The article goes on to expand on his early career. If nothing else, you will be impressed to know that he was the keyboardist for the Buggles, the band whose video for "Video Killed the Radio Star" was the first video played on MTV. What is it with film composers coming from offbeat 80's rock bands? (ex. Trevor Rabin and Danny Elfman)

This is just another piece to an impressive ensemble of talent that is being put together in this flick. I hope it all pays off. --Terrence Ryan
