James Newton Howard composed the score for The Hunger Games film, and he’s now confirmed that he’ll be returning for Catching Fire. According to Film Music Reporter:
James Newton Howard has confirmed in a recent interview with Filmmusicsite.com, Underscores.fr and BSO Spirit (available to listen here) at last weekend’s Ghent Film Festival that he is attached to score the upcoming The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire. The composer has scored this year’s first part in the series and has also written the music for the sequel’s director Francis Lawrence’s previous two features I Am Legend and Water for Elephants.
If you listen to the audio of the interview, the very last question asked is if James will be returning for Catching Fire, and he answers “yes.”
