No Time to Die is shifting around its pieces in post-production, as composer Dan Romer has now been replaced by the legendary Hans Zimmer.
Romer is a frequent collaborator of director Cary Fukunaga, having worked on Netflix miniseries Maniac and Beasts of No Nation, but according to Variety the change has been made due to “creative differences” on the 25th James Bond movie.
Zimmer needs no introduction really – the German has been nominated for 11 Oscars (winning one for The Lion King) and even had an asteroid belt named in his honour.
Reports suggest that the he’s already at work on No Time to Die‘s music score and may actually need to enlist help in order for the movie to meet its spring release date.

Stepping outside the sound studio, leading man Daniel Craig recently discussed why he decided to return to the spy franchise despite saying he’d rather “slash [his] wrists” than do another one after 2015’s Spectre.
No Time to Die, the 25th James Bond movie, has a UK release date of April 2, 2020, and opens in the US on April 10, 2020. All the previous Bond movies are available on DVD or Blu-ray.
