    He should've gotten IRON MAN!!! ARGGHH


    Agree. He could have delivered something great. Sadly, we´ll never know.


    Personally, I think he would've pulled a Zathura kind of thing, nothing too spectacular. Now, Ramin hasn't really done something like this yet, so I'm not that frustrated with the switch (but the thought that the movie won't be that memorable helps, of course wink).

    Well I have to say that I´d have prefered a Zathura rather than what Djawadi might come up with (I hope to be highly mistaken here and Djawadi delivers a great score, but...). As much sympathy as I have for ALL the RC guys, most of which I like, I doubt he can achieve Debney´s finesse with this kind of scores. But I truly wish to be proven wrong.
    And you´re right, I also think the movie won´t be that memorable, I think more of a "Daredevil" than a "Spiderman".

    Composer John Debney recently recorded his huge score (a 100-piece orchestra, plus choir) to the Eddie Murphy comedy STARSHIP DAVE. ScoringSessions.com has exclusive photos from the scoring session, so come check it out!

    Note to Eddie Murphy... stop making movies especially sci-fi comedies.

    I wish he'd just stop breathing!

    A bit strong maybe? wink ....I don't wish him dead.

    I used to find him funny until I realised he was a mysogonistic racist prick!

    Pooh... I watch the thread get bumped and had a tiny hope that Debney would be back on for Iron Man... nope. sad

    The man gets robbed, I tell you. Save for Cutthroat Island, Passion, Hocus Pocus and Lair Debney just doesn't get more projects more deserving of his time or his talent... just like David Newman.

    I would like to hear the exact reasons Favreau/Marvel/Paramount picked Djawadi over Debney for Iron Man. I know producers have a big hand in picking a composer (or letting the director pick their own composer), but didn't Favreau have any say in the matter?

    I enjoyed quite a bit Evan Almighty, hope Varèse will possibly release that one too. Sounds like it's going to be in the same vein.
  2. I'm still confused why the Passion Symphony was never released on CD/DVD or even performed very much. It's like it never existed. The Passion of the Christ is probably my favorite score of Debney's as well. My favorite track from the score is "Bearing the Cross." I also love his score for Paulie and Elf. The two have insanely memorable themes.

    Iron Man really should have fallen into Debney's lap. I mean he works on Favreau's first two movies, Elf and Zathura (two pretty good scores BTW), which it's safe to say is Debney's typecast, then Iron Man comes along and he gets scrapped. It's as though scoring Elf and Zathura didn't do anything except for put two more family comedies on Debney's resume.

    I completely agree 100% with this. One would have to assume it had something to do with Zimmer and not Djawadi, they most likely chose him because Zimmer couldn't score it and he recommended Djawadi. They must really not have wanted Debney for some reason.

    Does anyone have any insight on why Djawadi was chosen and Debney not? Someone in the business or an insider???

    Evan Almighty had some very strong parts in it, quite surprisingly for the kind of movie it accompanied. In that vein, i am looking forward to this new project as well although admittedly Debney is capable of way much more than what he gets these days.

    Are you people serious? slant If Djawadi's isolated music was as good, then his solo scores so far would actually have something worthwhile to them.

    But he didn't provide any score for those films... he did Batman Begins, Something's Gotta Give, POTC: CotBP, and Thunderbirds.

    Nope. A couple of rumors only, one being that Jon Favreau was impressed by Ramin's score for Open Season (Jon did one of the voices in that) - I don't know if that one is true, though...

    Does he really need to be involved with this projects? I mean, the man that composed "The Passion Symphony" should be working in things like "Hotel for Dogs"?

    He's a composing whore, he'll take any job.

    ...okay, so maybe a little harsh. But I think he treats it more like a 'job' than most other composers considering the crap he scores. Sure, he's an artist when needs be... but mostly a gun for hire.

    Well, he needs to feed his kids, right? I think the problem more lies with the director's that hire him. I can't blame him for taking the jobs he gets offered, I'm sure he'd prefer the better jobs as well.

    Yes you may be right, but a composer of the A list I think should be more selective with what he works on. I´m sure Debney has no money problems, so I can´t understand when I see him in projects like this one, unless he really loooooves to score this kinda films.

    Would it be too hard to believe that he actually LIKES working these projects.
