Lionsgate announced today that Academy Award winner and two time nominee T Bone Burnett (Crazy Heart, Cold Mountain) and four time Academy Award nominated composer Danny Elfman (Alice in Wonderland, Spider-Man) are collaborating on the music for the anticipated film adaptation of The Hunger Games, based on the first in Suzanne Collins’s runaway bestselling book trilogy. The announcement was made by Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group President Joe Drake.

Elfman and Burnett will be collaborating on the film score, with Burnett also serving as the film’s Executive Music Producer, producing songs for the film and soundtrack.

“‘The Hunger Games’ is such a special property it has worldwide mass appeal, but it’s also sophisticated, cerebral, soulful, and rebellious. We needed a composer who can translate these qualities musically, and we have not one but two incredible artists in an absolutely thrilling first time ever collaboration,” said Lionsgate’s Head of Film Music Tracy McKnight.

The Hunger Games is scheduled to hit theaters on March 23, 2012.
