Film Music Reporter has confirmed that composer John Ottman will score the upcoming X-Men film X-Men: Days of Future Past. Ottman, who will also edit the film, is no stranger to comic book movies having scored both Fantastic Four films, Superman Returns, and X2: X-Men United. Are you excited to see Ottman return to the franchise?
Set for release on July 18, 2014, X-Men: Days of Future Past features a script by Simon Kinberg and is said to be inspired by Chris Claremont and John Byrne’s comic book storyline that ran in “Uncanny X-Men” #141 and 142 back in 1981. “Days of Future Past” introduced the idea of an alternate future for Marvel’s mutants that grew out of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants killing an important senator, leading to a future where all mutants are hunted by Sentinels.
The film’s cast includes Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Halle Berry, Omar Sy and Peter Dinklage.
