Harry Gregson-Williams: I can tell you it’s been going East! This movie is set in ancient China, and there are going to be songs in it as well as my score. It’s a beautifully shot movie, we’re still half-way finished but I’m having an incredible gratifying time writing music for it. The director [Niki Caro] is someone I had very happy experience with on a film we did together a few years ago, THE ZOO KEEPER’S WIFE, and the girl who plays Mulan is absolutely wonderful; luminous, brilliant, and beautiful. The footage looks incredible, and very respectful to the original. I’m just in the early stages of writing thematic material for that. It’s all in front of me, and I’ll be scoring that in London at Abbey Road Studios in September.
