Since Radiohead‘s Jonny Greenwood delivered the tension-filled score for Paul Thomas Anderson‘s There Will Be Blood in 2007, there seems to be an uptick in musicians teaming with Hollywood. We’ve seen The Chemical Brothers provide the Hanna score this year, Karen O did Where the Wild Things Are a few years back, and of course, Trent Reznor gaining an Oscar for the The Social Network and we have his upcoming The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Greenwood is about to come full circle, as a new report confirms he’ll be scoring the next film from Paul Thomas Anderson.
Titled The Master, the news broke on Twitter from British record label Babel founder Oliver Weindling, where it was stated, “Zed-U recorded part of soundtrack for Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead last week. Film (by Paul Thomas Anderson) to appear in 2013.” It looks like the score will be less spare than his last collaboration, as Zed-U is “a British jazz trio” that Greenwood is working with. The only disappointing news is the 2013 mention for release, as we’ve come to expect it would be finished come late 2012, considering shooting wrapped this summer. But if this release is like There Will Be Blood, it could be hitting theaters in the UK then, with a late 2012 release still in store for the US.
