With less than three months to go before the release of the film, Zimmer replaces film composer Dan Romer, who reportedly departs due to creative differences with EON Productions, the film’s production company.

Romer had scored previous projects by Bond director Cary Fukunaga: Sleepwalking in the Rift, Beasts of No Nation and the tv series Maniac.

Zimmer is one of Hollywood’s most high-profile composers, famous for his scores for films such as Gladiator, The Da Vinci Code and the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. Hans Zimmer won an Oscar for his 1995 theme for The Lion King, and he also scored the 2019 live animation movie of the same name. Zimmer is perhaps best known for his collaborations with Christoper Nolan on Inception, Interstellar, the Dark Knight movies and more. Other movies include the war drama DunkirkBlade Runner 2049Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Dark Phoenix. 

And in 2020, more blockbuster movies will be scored by Zimmer, including Wonder Woman 1984 and Top Gun: Maverick.

Zimmer has scored two more films approaching release: superhero sequel Wonder Woman 1984 and Denis Villeneuve’s remake of Dune. He recently announced a live tour of arenas across Europe in spring 2021.

No Time to Die will be released on 2 April 2020 in the UK and 10 April 2020 in the US.

The theme song of the film has not yet been announced.
