Danny Elfman on composing score for 'Men in Black International' / billboard

Bookmark and Share

There's nothing composer Danny Elfman looks forward to more than diving back into a world he already loves. That's why the Grammy- and Emmy-winning film scoring legend who's set hearts racing for more than three decades was so excited to strike up the band for a fourth run at the Men in Black franchise. When the producers of the upcoming fourth chapter in the mind-erasing saga came around asking for a new neuralizer-worthy score, Elfman knew just what to do for the 26-track Men in Black: International (Original Motion Picture Score).

"When it's a musical genre that you enjoy it's always a pleasure to go back to it becuase Men in Black has allowed me to visit this unique musical world where I'm combining retro and comtemporary music in a playful way," Elfman, 66, tells Billboard about his brassy, thrilling score for the June 14 reboot starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in the franchise launched more than two decades ago by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.   PHOTO; Giles Keyte/Columbia Pictures
