T Bone Burnett & Danny Elfman to Create Music for ‘The Hunger Games’

Oscar-winner T Bone Burnett and Grammy-winner Danny Elfman will create the music for The Hunger Games film adaptation. According to the release, this project is “an unprecedented film music collaboration.”

The two composers will work together on the film score. Additionally, Burnett will serve as the executive music producer for both the score and the soundtrack. Many Hunger Games fans have reacted happily to the announcement on Facebook.

Lionsgate’s head of film music Tracy McKnight explained: “The Hunger Games is such a special property – it has worldwide mass appeal, but it’s also sophisticated, cerebral, soulful, and rebellious. We needed a composer who can translate these qualities musically, and we have not one but two incredible artists in an absolutely thrilling first time ever collaboration.”

Elfman has become well-known for his collaborations with director Tim Burton; he has worked on several literary adaptations including Batman (1989), Charlie & the Chocolate Factory (2005), and Alice in Wonderland (2010). Burnett has also set the music for many literary adaptations including O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000), Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (2002), and Crazy Heart (2009).
