Djawadi joined Media Ventures, the home of Hans Zimmer and has collaborated with Zimmer on BATMAN BEGINS and many other projects. He also contributed to Badelt's score of the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN trilogy.
Here's what Favreau said about the composer set to handle his film..
Composer Ramin Djawadi started out his musical career as a guitar player in numerous bands in Germany. In 1995 he decided to move to the US to earn a bachelor's degree in film scoring and guitar performance at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. While still in college he became a member of the band "My Favorite Relative," who were nominated for seven Boston Music Awards in 1999.
In 2000, Ramin moved to California to join Media Ventures, home of Academy Award Winner Hans Zimmer, which led to collaborations as a composer and arranger for Klaus Badelt including featuring films "The Time Machine," "K-19: The Widowmaker," "Basic" and "The Recruit." Recently, he contributed music to Badelt's score to Jerry Bruckheimer's summer blockbuster "Pirates of the Caribbean."
He co-composed and produced the score for "Thunderbirds" together with Hans Zimmer. Other collaborations with Zimmer include "Something's Gotta Give" and "Batman Begins". Recent scores are "Blade: Trinity," the hit TV series "The Grid" and the Disney movie "Buffalo Dreams."
