X-Men 3, John Ottman hopes to be able to return and expand on his themes from X2 and it appears the X3 team also want Ottman back. John Ottman recently told Monsters And Critics:
“I would love to do X3, and I know they want me to do it. The only hitch would be if Superman conflicts with their schedule. I really wanted to do X3 because I set up all the themes to be expanded upon later.”
John Ottman’s website has also been updated with his thoughts and feelings on his latest score ‘The House Of Wax.’
"I want the music big and gothic," said Joel Silver. That was the mission statement for House of Wax, my third venture with Joel. The first thing to come to mind, of course, was organ, choir, and a large orchestra. Essentially a teen slasher, House of Wax would feel bigger with a grander musical approach, while still delivering the visceral scares. Large scale orchestra music is the most fun to write for me, and there would be a lot of it.”
