James Newton Howard replacing Danny Elfman as composer for 'Hunger Games'

Insert joke about musical chairs here: Next year’s hotly anticipated Hunger Games movie has officially swapped composers, with original hire Danny Elfman (Batman, Spider-Man, The Simpsons, a million other things) stepping aside and James Newton Howard (King Kong, Michael Clayton, Unbreakable, a million other things) taking over. EW has confirmed that Elfman left the project due to a scheduling conflict: He’s currently slated to work on next year’s Dark Shadows and the Hollywood-consuming amoeba known as Men in Black III. Howard will collaborate on the soundtrack with mega-producer T Bone Burnett, who has been shamelessly teasing the world about original music for months now.
