The link above is to a cool article about how James Newton Howard and Peter Jackson were able to talk and create a score in mere weeks.

Just thought that you JNH fans would find this interesting. :)

Can't wait for the Lady in the Water score!! :wub:

 Sorry if this was already discussed, but is Howard confirmed to compose the score for Lady In The Water?

 First of all, yes.

Second, I didn't have to wait for a confirmation to know that Night was going to use JNH, he has used him ever since The Sixth Sense. How could he not? I think they are one of the strongest director-composer collaborations there are to date, Absolutely Brilliant! The Village earned JNH a Oscar nom, hopefully this time he can earn the award itself!  :D

I'm not as much of an optimist!  Glad to hear he's on board, though.

 I think JMH will make the score for every M. Night movie. They work together very well as director and composer. Just like Spielberg and John Williams, or Tim Burton and Danny Elfman, or Ridley Scott and Hans Zimmer. They are like a non gay couple.
