'Twilight: Eclipse' scores 'Lord of the Rings' composer Howard Shore
In "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," Edward Cullen will encounter a hobbit and be called upon to accompany the One Ring to Mordor.
Okay, not really, but you might be reminded of that Middle Earth adventure when watching the latest "Twilight" installment.
Summit Entertainment has landed a big fish, Academy Award-winning composer Howard Shore to score the film, reports Movie Score Magazine.
Shore is best known for his Oscar-winning scores for the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, so he's great at doing big, epic scores. His resume also includes "The Silence of the Lambs," "Se7en," "The Cell" and "The Departed."
He steps in after Carter Burwell scored "Twilight" and Alexandre Desplat scored the second film, "New Moon."
"Eclipse," directed by David Slade, will hit theaters on June 30.
What do you think about Shore's involvement? Does it fit the series?
