Zimmer to Score Simpsons Flick

by | April 20, 2006 | Comments

If you’d have asked me "Hey, Scott, here’s a silly question, but … who do you think they’ll hire to write the score for next year’s "The Simpsons Movie?" my answer would have been the same as any diehard Simpso-maniac…

"Either Danny Elfman, who long ago wrote the opening credits music — or a guy named Alf Clausen, who’s been doing brilliant musical work for the series since day one." (Clausen writes those brilliant musical sequences: The monorail song, the Kwik-E-Mart ditty, the Maison Derriere tune, the ‘Planet of the Apes‘ stage parody, and (my favorite) the hilarious ‘See My Vest.’)

Well, word’s come in that the gig went to … Hans Zimmer — a fine composer, but not the first guy you’d think of where "The Simpsons" are concerned.

Says Soundtrack.net: "Now that it has been mentioned on the Gorfaine-Schwartz Agency website, SoundtrackNet can reveal that composer Hans Zimmer is expected to write the score for the feature film version of ‘The Simpsons.’"

Mr. Zimmer’s best-known scores include "Rain Man," "Gladiator," and "Batman Begins." He also won an Oscar for his contributions to "The Lion King."
