The double Oscar-winning composer and the English orchestra will soon team up for a concert and also compose for a Hollywood movie. Apart from this, sources also say Rahman may team up with film-maker Danny Boyle for another movie soon. The duo had earlier worked together on Slumdog Millionaire.

A source says, “Rahman has been approached for a big-budget English production by a very big studio. Then there are talks that he might be teaming up with Danny Boyle again. That movie is likely to have an urban feel. That might happen even sooner.”
Rahman had earlier said during the course of an interview, “I thank Danny Boyle for giving me a great movie. It has been a truly memorable experience to work with him and I shall always look forward to working with him. I hope to get an opportunity in the form of a right movie soon.”

Meanwhile, a member from the London Philarmonic Orchestra said Rahman was in their scheme of things but did not disclose the nature of the development. However, an aide of Rahman confirmed about plans of the concert. “Rahman has already launched his world tour. The London Philharmonic Orchestra is expected to come on board for this one. They will most probably play in the European leg of the tour. In fact, a few Hollywood projects that Rahman is expected to freeze on is also set to have the orchestra in it,” says the source.

“Rahman’s bond with the orchestra has only increased since they announced that they will perform the best works of Rahman in London.”
