Question: Is there any particular reason why Marco Beltrami didn't return to score this film? I understand he has a voice-over cameo during the movie, so he was obviously involved in some capacity. But why didn't he write the music? Was it a scheduling conflict? Did the directors simply want to bring in a new composer? Etc.
