Howard Shore to score Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit

Lord Of The Rings composer Howard Shore will return to score Peter Jackson’s prequel The Hobbit.

Shore told reporters that he has been discussing reuniting with Jackson for the two-part Hobbit adaptation since 2002.

“It looks like finally it’s going to be happening,” he said. “I’ll be working on it for the next three years – it’s going to consume a lot of my time and work now.”

Shore won Oscars for his work on Fellowship Of The Ring and Return Of The King – and worked with the director on King Kong before leaving due to creative differences.
