Pharrell Williams revealed in a recent interview with Billboard that he has joined composer Hans Zimmer to score the upcoming superhero film sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Zimmer has previously been announced as the composer of the movie directed by Marc Webb and starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Denis Leary, Colm Feore, Chris Cooper, Sally Field, Chris Zylka, Marton Csokas and Felicity Jones. The sequel is produced by Avi Arad (X-Men, Iron Man, Hulk) and Matt Tolmach. Zimmer and Williams are taking over scoring duties on the series from James Horner who composed a widely acclaimed score for last year’s reboot. Williams has previously co-composed the Zimmer-produced score for the first Despicable Me and also contributed songs and themes for its sequel. He also collaborated with Zimmer on last year’s Oscar ceremony and performed drums on this year’s Man of Steel score for the composer. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set to be released on May 2, 2014 by Sony Pictures.
