    Looking around the net for more news on this film, I came across this.....

    The shock news that Howard Shore has left the production of King Kong and the score will now be done by James Newton Howard. And if this doesn't get you worried when the movie comes out in just EIGHT weeks, then I'd be very surprised! Peter Jackson made an announcement about the news "I have greatly enjoyed my collaborations with Howard Shore, whose musical themes made immeasurable contributions to 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy. During the last few weeks, Howard and I came to realize that we had differing creative aspirations for the score of 'King Kong.' Rather than waste time arguing with a friend and trying to unify our points of view, we decided amicably to let another composer score the film. I'm looking forward to working with James Newton Howard, a composer whose work I've long admired, and I thank Howard Shore, whose talent is surpassed only by his graciousness."

    It's rather late for someone to step in with a new score, don't you think?

    John Barry completely rescored and recorded most of Thunderball and wrote and recorded the theme song - and all just two weeks before the movie premiered.

    There's hope then! James Newton Howard is a good composer and I have no doubt that he will do a fine job of the score for King Kong even at this late stage but for Peter Jackson to replace Howard Shore with just eight weeks to go sounds a bit unusual considering that they were supposedly very good friends. They did, after all, work well together on LOTR.

    Sounds like Peter Jackson has it in mind how he would like the score to sound or at least has an idea on the tempo etc.
