'Game of Thrones' Changes Its Tune, Hires New Composer

'Game of Thrones' has parted ways with its Academy Award-winning composer, Stephen Warbeck. The much-anticipated HBO drama has hired a new composer, Ramin Djawadi.

Djawadi's most notable television projects have been 'FlashForward' and 'Prison Break,' and in the film realm, Djawadi wrote the scores for 'Iron Man' and 'Clash of the Titans.' Djawadi, who has worked frequently with composer Hans Zimmer, is also credited with composing "additional music" for movies such as 'Batman Begins,' 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl' and 'Something's Gotta Give.'

Djawadi will have to work fast: The fantasy drama premieres in just over 10 weeks, on April 17.

In other 'Game of Thrones' news, a member of the cast passed away recently and the show's executive producers, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, issued a statement mourning the loss of Margaret Johns, who played Old Nan.
