You may remember that Linkin Park's "What I've Done" was a part of the Transformers
movie soundtrack. Well, director Michael Bay has elected to work with the band once
more, this time enlisting them to work on the score of Transformers 2: Revenge of the
Mike Shinoda posted this news on his blog earlier today and talked about the process.
BREAKING NEWS: Linkin Park will be working on the score for Transformers 2:
Revenge Of The Fallen.
Although I wasn't at liberty to say it before, the song I've been referencing here on
mikeshinoda.com in the past few weeks...is actually being done for Michael Bay's
new Transformers film, due out June 24th.
In addition--and probably ever cooler--we have been offered the unique opportunity
to help score the film. The song we wrote is being used as one of the themes, and
we will be writing various interpolations on that theme, and trying out some other
thematic ideas as part of the (very large) team scoring the film.
My bandmates and I are working with award-winning film composer (and resident
ass-kicker) Hans Zimmer. We met with Hans last week, and heard some of the
incredible things he and his guys have done with our new song. In the next few days,
we'll be doing some work with Hans' amazing writing and recording crew.
Michael Bay has shown us select scenes from the film, and it looks incredible.
I can't wait for you to see it.
I don't readily admit it, but I'm pretty excited about this movie.
