Re: Who should be the Director for Star Wars Episode 7?
I don't know enough of Rachel Portman and Clive Mansell but they might be good choices?
I love Clint Mansell, but his scores are generally pretty minimalistic. He did nicely evocative stuff
for Moon, and something only marginally more thunderous
for the space opera vidoegame franchise Mass Effect.
I don't see this fitting Star Wars in the way Shore or Giacchino could, but then again maybe the new trilogy is going to move away from the romantic bombast for all I know.
