A month after conducting in London the music of Jean-Jacques Annaud's Wolf Totem, James Horner continues with the recording of the Chilean film The 33, from Mexican-American director Patricia Riggen (Girl in Progress – 2012), who brings together on screen Antonio Banderas, Lou Diamond Phillip, Gabriel Byrne, Juliette Binoche, Martin Sheen …
The film is based on the mining disaster of 2010 in which a group of thirty-three miners have been trapped in the San Jose mine in Chile. The action will focus on the two-month effort to try to save them. The release is scheduled for 2015.

He also spoke briefly to us about the music:
"A small string section, no woodwind, brass or percussion. More beautiful pipe solos by Tony Hinnigan and guitar solos by George Doering! It's a beautiful score!"

  1. Wonderful and very very happy news to hear that James is doing this film and more happier than this news is that he’s busy again composing music to movies ,I’m looking forward and very very eager to listen to his wonderful music.

    1. when i heard the heartbreaking news that james horner is dead of on plane crash.i was totally heartbroken

  2. Music can elevate a movie, bringing beautiful sounds to images, making the film memorable beyond the story, plot and characters. James Horner was a master, a national treasure known around the world to anyone who saw a film he scored.
    He was so incredibly humble.He was inspired by movies that were and are visionary, not blockbusters although Titanic was certainly an exception. And he had exceptional taste. My heart goes out to his family and friends following the accident that took his life.
