“Twilight” Assigned to Carter Burwell

By • June 10, 2008

Carter Burwell has just finished work on his new film with the Coen Brothers, Burn After Reading, and is now scoring Twilight, the upcoming teen vampire film directed by eclectic production designer-turned-filmmaker Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown, The Nativity Story). The film is based on Stephenie Meyer’s novel and stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Produced by Maverick Film and Summit Entertainment, it’s scheduled to premiere on December 12. Twilight is Burwell’s first horror score since Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 which came out in 2000.

Yeah, I was SEVERELY disappointed in Carter’s work in the the first Twilight movie. Far too much repetition and lack width (for the lack of a better word) made the score dull, uneventful and completely anti-climatic. But, it went with the movie that was complete crap and a joke. So I guess it works. The director changes for the subsequent movies is a welcome relief. Catherine Hardwick totally made a joke of herself with the first installment of the Twilight series.
