Rumor has it that Hans Zimmer is composing the score for Modern Warfare 2.

According to a listing over on the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency, the Grammy, Oscar, and Golden Globe winner will provide the score for the shooter.

We’re talking about the fella who composed the music for Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lion King, Gladiator, The Dark Knight and many, many others.

He can’t be cheap. Not by a long shot.

We’ll drop a line to Infinity Ward and see if anyone bites. Until then, it’s a rumor people.
