'Insurgent' Movie News: Ellie Goulding To Return To Soundtrack For Next Film Due To Good Relationship With Artist? [VIDEO]
Ellie Goulding evidently has a strong relationship with the new Divergent series composer, as he recently had positive things to say about the artist.
In an interview on Tuesday with HitFix, new composer Joseph Trapanese talked about collaborating with outside artists on the score, and how this it would differ from the first movie.
"The first film had a lot of sounds in it, very song-driven from artists like Woodkid and Ellie Goulding. It gave the film something to hold on to, to really bring you through the journey," he said.
"This film, there's a lot more danger and a lot more at stake. We've vacated the song-based soundtrack, relied more on the score. The score is darker and more intense."
He also elaborated on working with Goulding and what he would like to do in the future with her in regards to the score of Insurgent.
"I love Ellie as well. We'll just have to wait and see. Not only can I not talk about it, but I haven't finished the score yet. We've scored about two-thirds to three-quarters of the film, about to dive into the final steps," Trapanese said.
"With digital filmmaking, everything can be changed, which is a good and bad thing. Before, you have to be bound to a decision. Now, it's also great but challenging if, later in the game, we have to tweak those decisions. We've been working on this since July, slowly. We've been talking about it since March."
Insurgent is set to hit theaters on March 20, 2015. The official trailer can be viewed below.
