Yes, it wouldn't be strictly action, but it wouldn't be Hannibal too. It would be progressive and industrial with many harsh electronics.

Action cues could be maybe a little disorderly.

But not before Episode 3 and Indy 4.

From what I heard Zimmer was to score Band of Brothers. And Spielberg, after Crimson Tide, is a declared Zimmer fan. This is why Hans is the musical director in DreamWorks.
