Zimmer made headlines earlier this year after choosing Billie Eilish to create music for the new James Bond film. In an interview with Vulture Magazine, Hans described why he ultimately chose her to pen the new song.

While describing his decision after hearing Eilish's 'No Time to Die' submission, he said, “That’s the vibe. That’s the everything. It’s a perfect movie song: In its quietness, somehow, you have a huge landscape in front of you.”

Billie wasn't the only huge musician who sent it possible tracks for the move, but Zimmer didn't give up who...“I’m not going to say who, but I am going to get myself into loads of trouble, and I don’t care: I couldn’t get past the intro," he said.

According to online reports, Hans' net worth is north of $100 Million, but any money he made prior to his marriage to Suzanne would not be considered community property. It's unclear if the couple has a prenup.
