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).
Ah, but that's an excellent example, because before Lord of the Rings, Howard Shore didn't do a whole lot of neo-romantic scores. I do believe that Blanchard or Greenwood or other non-conventional choices could write music that would fit a Star Wars movie while bringing something new to the plate, which is what Shore did for LOTR.
