Is it just me, or has the media machine for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse been strangely silent? Considering the frenzy that surrounded New Moon, Eclipse seems downright staid. But that’s okay — a little restraint can be a good thing and adds a bit of class to the proceedings. Speaking of which, Eclipse just got a huge dose of class with the naming of the composer of its score: Howard Shore.
Per MovieScore Magazine, the Lord of the Rings composer is going to write the music for the film, following in the footsteps of Carter Burwell (who scored the first film in 2008) and Alexandre Desplat (who wrote the music for the second, New Moon). Shore has begun work, spotting the movie, this week.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is based on the third novel in the series of four books written by Stephenie Meyer. The film is directed by David Slade (30 Days of Night and Hard Candy), with returning cast members including Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Billy Burke, Ashley Greene, and Jackson Rathbone. Summit Entertainment will release the film on June 30.
