It depends on which version of the Media Ventures we get for a sequel.
If it is not a rush job, and Badelt and company did a more original score, then I'm all for having them return. I'm so hot and cold with these guys. Just when I start to hate them for recycling and reusing, or slightly rearranging work they've done before, they blow me away with something new and different. I don't have the score to A Power of One or other Africa themed scores by Zimmer so I'm not sure how familiar the score for Tears of the Sun is to Zimmer collectors. I was just about to write Zimmer off for good when I gave the "Tears" score a listen. I was absolutely blown away. I loved it within the context of the film, but I really love it as a stand alone score. Especially Steve Jablonsky's contribution.

So if Badelt gets another crack (and judging from the sales of the CD he will), I hope and pray that they are given the proper time to give the dollar dropping public what they deserve - and what the Media Ventures crew have proven on occasion that they are capable of - A solid, inspiring, work of art.

If you don't want to gamble. then I say bring on Brian Tyler.
