'No Time To Die' Is Bringing Back A James Bond Tradition
No Time to Die's legendary film composer Hans Zimmer has revealed how this year's 007 film will bring back a certain James Bond tradition.
In conversation with Variety, the Oscar winner (known for his epic scores such as The Dark Knight trilogy, The Lion King and Pirates of the Caribbean) spoke about his work on the upcoming Daniel Craig thriller.
According to Zimmer, a call to The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr was his main inspiration - yes, the score brings guitars back.

"I have known [producer] Barbara Broccoli for a long time and we are friends. I never thought we would work on something together, so it was surprising to just get the call," he said.
"I didn't know if I wanted to do it, so I called Johnny Marr and said, 'I have two questions to ask you. The first question is: what is the only guitar part worth it in one Film to be played? ' And he said, "The bond part".
"And I said, 'Yes, right. Second question: Do you think I should make the film and would you play the guitar part?' So that clarified that. Johnny was right. "
Zimmer went on to discuss how Marr "wanted to get the guitar back into the score".
"We just hugged our inner John Barry [the original 1960s Bond composer]."
'No Time to Die' will be released in the UK on November 12th and in the US on November 20th
