Multiple Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer (“Blade Runner 2049,” “Inception,” “Gladiator,” “The Lion King”) is again on hand to create the score. Villeneuve is also reteaming with Oscar-winning production designer Patrice Vermette (“Arrival,” “Sicario,” “The Young Victoria”), Oscar-winning editor Joe Walker (“Blade Runner 2049,” “Arrival,” “12 Years a Slave”), three-time Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor Paul Lambert (“First Man,” “Blade Runner 2049”), and Oscar-winning special effects supervisor Gerd Nefzer (“Blade Runner 2049”).
