When you consider additional music in RCP scores, you have to be aware that the ghostwriters are responsible for the writing itself, but *not* the general concept. Zimmer is giving them exact outline which theme to include where and in what way. It's not exactly brimming with creativity.
In case of the Overture, Zimmer seemingly didn't really want to have anything to do with the Rossini piece. Not out of his laziness, according to Verbinski he was against using it at all, but finally caved in to the director's demands, telling him that the Overture will be dealt with only after the rest of the thematic material is set up.
