David Arnold on being replaced as Bond scorer

January 12th, 2012 by Paddy Comments


Thomas Newman has officially been installed as the composer for the new Bond film Skyfall but his predecessor David Arnold is,to paraphrase the great Ron Burgundy, staying classy about it.

“I’ve known since June….Sam [Mendes] and I talked about it and I said I am very much of the opinion that a director should have who they want and fully expected Tom to be doing the film,” said Arnold.
“Couldn’t tweet about it as contracts weren’t finalised until recently…but it’s all very good. I’m looking forward to watching Skyfall as a fan. First time in 14 years! Still working with Eon on 50th anniversary stuff..exciting.
“I always said I would do them as long as they ask. If they ask for next one I will do it.”

Paddy Ryan, like Buck Rogers, is a man out of time. He's a loose cannon haunted by his past who, when he's not making painful attempts at humour, is busy watching as many geeky films and TV shows as possible. An avid reader, he has vowed one day to start that novel he's been talking about for years. Born in the late 70s, he's an 80s kid at heart who sees nothing wrong with spending hours upon hours watching season three of Robin Of Sherwood. Jason Connery wasn't that bad you know! He's got a million ideas for comic books but thankfully doesn't know anyone with the time to draw them and call his bluff on that one! The Empire Strikes Back is his favourite film, Doctor Who is his TV show of choice and when it comes to books ... well that's a whole other story! I'm Paddy Ryan and you're not...
