Alexandre Desplat scores New Moon
New Moon, the upcoming sequel to last year's
massive hit Twilight, gets an original score by
French composer Alexandre Desplat.
The assignment of the Curious Case of Benjamin

This means that Carter Burwell, whose
'Bella's Lullaby' became an immediate success
with Twilight fans, does not return to the sequel.
The reason is that New Moon director
Chris Weitz already has an ongoing working
relationship with Desplat who scored his fantasy
epic The Golden Compass.
Desplat's other previous films include
The Queen, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium
and Lust, Caution.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon will hit
theatres on November 20.
