‘Lost’ Composer Michael Giacchino to Score ‘Jurassic World’

“Star Trek” and “Lost” composer Michael Giacchino has been set to score Universal’s “Jurassic World.”

Giacchino has quickly become one of the go-to composers for many of Hollywood’s big-budget tentpoles: His other credits include “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol,” “Super 8” and the upcoming “Tomorrowland” and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.”

“My first stop-motion movies at 9-years-old involved stories where dinosaurs and men were trapped together on long-lost islands or far away planets,” Giacchino said. “My first composing job was to write the score for the Steven Spielberg-produced videogame based on the film ‘The Lost World,’ which was one of the earliest console videogames to feature an original orchestral score. Having the chance to work on this new movie with the talented director Colin Trevorrow is an incredible opportunity to bring full circle the journey of dinosaurs and film that started in my backyard over 30 years ago.”

Giacchino steps in for legendary composer John Williams, who scored the first two films in the installment.

Jurassic World” is currently filming with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard starring and Colin Trevorrow directing. The pic bows June 12, 2015.
