Celebrated composer Hans Zimmer has been drafted in as a last-minute replacement to score the James Bond movie No Time to Die, less than three months before its release. He replaces Dan Romer, the American composer who had previously been announced as scoring the film.

There is also no word as to who will write or perform the title song. Title songs for Bond films such as’Skyfall’ and ‘Spectre,’ by Adele and Sam Smith respectively had won Oscars

Director Cary Fukunaga roped in Romer into the project last year. The filmmaker and the composer had earlier collaborated on Beasts Of No Nation and the mini-series Maniac. The recording of the film’s music reportedly needs to be completed by mid-February. Zimmer might get his frequent collaborators such as Benjamin Wallfisch or Lorne Balfe on board.
