Bear McCreary. No doubt the new movie will have way more aliens than the original. His score for BSG seemed way more alien than the series "deserved" (the series & the peoples felt very American).
It's true that nuBSG's culture was largely American, but it was American with a melange of other influences - the Greek gods, etc. I think McCreary's electic influences fit in very well with that show.

I don't want a John Williams clone. If we can't have Williams himself, they should hire someone completely different, like Terence Blanchard or Jonny Greenwood.
I don't think it needs a clone like Ottman's work on Superman Returns
, but a composer working in the same neo-romantic film music tradition as John Williams would be a good call (hence my pick of Howard Shore).
