Atli Örvarsson has been hired to score Harald Zwart's new film, The Mortal Instruments - City Of Bones, set to release on August 23rd, 2013. Atli previously worked with Zwart on The Karate Kid (2010) but was ultimately replaced by James Horner...
Among his other projects, Atli recently completed the score to the upcoming czech film Colette. He also completed in 2012 two films yet to be released : A Single Shot and Evidence. Atli also helped Hans Zimmer writing music for the upcoming Man Of Steel.
Other than film scoring, Atli has started a band, Torrek, "fusing Gaelic & Scandinavian folk elements under the umbrella of cinematic electronica" with Hilda Örvarsdóttir, the Neff brothers (who had worked with Atli on The Eagle score) and Satnam Ramgotra (regular percussionist at Remote Control).
"The original score is mostly written by Nick Glennie-Smith though Hans Zimmer receives the main credit and additional music was composed by Henning Lohner. After the disappointments that were King Arthur and Thunderbirds it almost seemed the year would slip by without any noteworthy score from Zimmer but luckily Lauras Stern turns out to be a very charming score saving Zimmer's grace - and Glennie-Smith's too for that matter - in the nicest of ways."
"This epic magical and thrilling orchestral score is a new fantasy classic for those that love great music and the genre." (from www.varesesarabande.com)
Release Date : 11/23/04 on the Varese Sarabande label

KINGDOM OF HEAVEN
Harry Gregson-Williams will score the next Ridley Scott's film while Hans Zimmer was thought to be on the project. Let's hope it will be the great occasion for Harry to compose a great epical score?

WHEN JEAN-PIERRE MET HANS
Back in 2002 while promoting Amelie Jean-Pierre JEUNET thought about Hans ZIMMER for scoring A Very Long Engagement. As an admirer of Hans ZIMMER's Gladiator he thought Zimmer would be one of the best choice for scoring his new movie an epic drama set around the World War 1. Hans Zimmer who loved Amelie was thrilled by the idea. Unfortunaly time schedule between them couldn't be synchronised and each of them went their ways. Finally the movie was scored by Angelo Badalamenti who previously worked with Jean-Pierre JEUNET for the City of Lost Children. However the french director told us that this is not an end and sometimes in the future a collaboration could occurs.
