James Newton Howard To Score The Last Airbender

M Night Shyamalan has found himself under attack for the casting choices in the upcoming big screen live action adaptation of Avatar, titled The Last Airbender (almost 500 angry comments on our previous news story). I have a big of good news for Avatar fans: The Gorfaine-Schwartz Agency has confirmed that seven-time Academy Award-nominated composer James Newton Howard has signed on to compose the film's score. Airbender will be the seventh collaboration between Howard and Shyamalan. Howard most recently received acclaim for his work with Hans Zimmer on The Dark Knight.
