Transformers News: Composer Steve Jablonsky Discusses Transformers 4 (and More)

Calling the work he’s done on the Transformers scores “all big fun,” Jablonsky went on to talk about his plans for work on the upcoming Age of Extinction score. While he hasn't entered the planning stages yet with Bay for it, Jablonsky confirmed that he will definitely be doing the score for Age of Extinction. Jablonsky was considered for the next Spider-Man movie, but while in talks with Spider-Man director Mark Webb, Jablonsky states he literally woke up and realized the film would share a schedule with Transformers 4. Both huge projects, both highly anticipated films, and Steve Jablonsky decided that he needed to stick with Michael Bay on Age of Extinction. And while Jablonsky says he has no expectation of Bay telling him he is Bay’s “go-to” composer, he does recognize that prior to working with Jablonsky, Bay did not regularly use any one composer. Now, Jablonsky says,
…yes, I think I’m his guy. I never assume, I never take it for granted.


And after he completes the score for Age of Extinction? Jablonsky says he has a few possibilities, one of them being a few themes for a project with Bay called, “The Last Ship,” an action TV show.

I was hoping for more talk about spiderman and more about hamsters.

I wonder what the difference in pay was between the 2 projects. I don't really care if he took the higher paying one, if transformers is, or his reasoning for doing so. I'm just curious.

Did you read the interview? If you didn't, it's a decent, short read. It doesn't address pay between the two movies, but it gives the impression that he genuinely enjoys working with Bay. Jablonsky has worked with Bay on tons of projects, and I think that was a big part in his decision, at least as the interview reads.

I did, it was an interesting read. Like I said though I'm just interested in what both movies would pay for his job.

I would be curious to know too. I just don't know how much it mattered to his decision--but I would love to know too. I imagine both would be fairly high paying.

Great news! Mr. Jablonsky's music was about the only thing I enjoyed about ROTF without any negatives.

Yes, great news! I love his Transformers scores!
Hopefully the score will be released on cd like the first two movies.

I think that and Peter Cullen's voice would be the hole highlight from this movie...
