Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino (The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Cars 2, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Star Trek, Super 8, Star Trek Into Darkness) has signed on to score Universal’s 2015 dino blockbuster Jurassic World.
In 2010 Giacchino added an Academy Award win for his Up score to his nomination for 2007’s Ratatouille. He’s also garnered an Emmy, a BAFTA, a Golden Globe, two Grammys, and numerous other awards over the course of a prolific career that began in video games and took off with his work on JJ Abrams‘ Alias and LOST. His all-new Jurassic World score will weave in iconic themes from John Williams’ classic Jurassic Park score, similar to what he did with the music for Abrams’ Star Trek and Star Trek: Into Darkness.
The fourth film in the Jurassic Park series is being helmed by Colin Trevorrow from his script with Derek Connolly and is set to star Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, and French thesp Omar Sy (The Intouchables). Jurassic World brings Giacchino full circle, as one of his first gigs was scoring the Steven Spielberg-produced Warpath: Jurassic Park vidgame based on 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Giacchino’s upcoming scores include those for Jupiter Ascending, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and Tomorrowland. He’s repped by The Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency.
