Dan Romer reportedly signed as Bond 25 composer

Cary Fukunaga reported to have brought in former collaborator for musical duties.

Anyone hoping for David Arnold’s return to the Bond franchise any time soon are likely to be disappointed after IndieWire reported that Dan Romer has been brought on board Bond 25 by Cary Fukunaga.

Romer has previously worked with Fukunaga on Netflix show Manic and, according to the article “excels at finding the appropriate vibe with quirky, eclectic unpredictability”.

Here’s more from the IndieWire article:

But imagine Romer musically shaking up the Bond franchise. He could be as bold as Fukunaga allows, experimenting with strange sounds and haunting themes. And the fact that the film is set in Jamaica, Italy, Norway, and London should play to the composer’s versatility.

Of course it’s not yet confirmed. But the director may wish to bring someone fresh to score the forthcoming 007.

Update: Romer appears to have confirmed the report on Twitter:
