Hans Zimmer brought in to score new James Bond movie No Time To Die at last minute
Hans Zimmer has been brought in to score the new James Bond movie No Time To Die.
Zimmer, who has scored the likes of Inception and Gladiator, replaces Dan Romer, the American composer who had previously been announced as scoring the film.
The composer's appointment is a last-minute move with the film's release date just three months away.
According to reports, Roser's departure came after "creative differences" with director Cary Fukunaga.
No Time To Die is Daniel Craig's final movie as James Bond.
It will see Lashana Lynch, Rami Malek and Ana De Armas join the cast, while Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Leya Seydoux and Jeffrey Wright will be returning to star.
Both Scott Z.Burns and Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge have been named as writers along with director Cary Fukunaga and long-time 007 scribes Robert Wade and Neal Purvis.
The new Bond movie's official synopsis reads as follows:
"Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology..."
No Time To Die will hit cinemas on April 2nd in the UK and in the US on April 8th in 2020.
