FOX did want to change ANYTHING according to Elfman   Saturday, July 28, 2001 (10:35 a.m.) 

The following music appeared on the Film Music Discussion List From: "Richard F. Carnahan" regarding the recent stories about rescoring of the remake of PLANET OF THE APES. I thought it might interest you.

From a letter-to-the-editor in Saturday's LA Times (7-28-01):
We all know that one of the most interesting and often amusing things
about the Internet as "news source" is that absolutely anyone can say
anything based on everything from true facts to jealousy and alien
intervention.

At a PLANET OF THE APES press junket in New York last week, I was asked
about 100 times about the story printed in The Times of my forced "rescoring"
of the music. I'm absolutely amazed. Not that the story appeared on the Net
but that you printed it verbatim without checking on the validity.

The facts are these: If anyone was unhappy in any way, they never told
me. We not only didn't rescore anything, but I canceled two sessions that I
had been holding just in case we did need extra time and we were finished
ahead of schedule.

No, Alan, I think that the idiot is a little closer to home.
