Looks like the man some have regarded as the new John Williams will be heading over to the world last occupied by Steven Spielberg and Williams himself, as Michael Giacchino has now been officially signed on to write the score for the Colin Trevorrow-helmed Jurassic World, the latest entry (and possible start of a new trilogy) in the Jurassic Park franchise.
Over the past decade, Giacchino has not only made a name for himself but also served to establish a reputation as one of the finest living composers in Hollywood, having given his signature touch to blockbusters like Up along with the last two Mission: Impossible and Star Trek films. He also wrote the music for Lost and even emulated Williams (quite well, might I add) with his work on 2011’s Super 8. Let’s hope he can bring the same majesty back to Isla Nubar.
Jurassic World roars into theaters June 12, 2015.
