2023: October 08: New project: THE KILLER
Marco Beltrami is currently scoring John Woo's reimagining of his own 1989 action thriller THE KILLER for Universal Pictures (their second project together after upcoming SILENT NIGHT). The plot details are currently unknown as the film switches the gender of the main protagonists. THE KILLER stars Nathalie Emmanuel and Omar Sy. Here is the quote from interview with the film's producer Charles Roven published by The Hollywood Reporter who also summarized the current state of the production, which was originally expected to be released by Peacock by the end of this year. More details will be added as soon as available.

"I was also shooting a wonderful movie in Paris. John Woo is remaking his own movie, The Killer, which was one of his seminal Hong Kong movies that he made in 1989. So we had to shut that down because we lost all of our SAG actors, and of course, we honored that. We’ve got somewhere between 10 and 18 days left, so that was obviously very disappointing.
In the original Killer, the great Chinese male actor Chow Yun-fat played the killer, but the killer in this movie is played by Nathalie Emmanuel. And by changing the dynamic to a woman, the storyline became quite different. So, while it’s an homage to his movie, it’s definitely not a remake. There’s a lot of original content in it that’s different from the first movie."

2024: May 14: THE KILLER recording sessions
The score for John Woo's THE KILLER was recorded last week in London at Abbey Road Studio 2. Check Marco's instagram for the first clip from the score and a few photos. Here is an excerpt from Marco's description: "An unusually romantic and fun way to score bloody action scenes that look almost like ballet!"
So far no release date has been confirmed.

2024: April 24: New 10-movement concert work with 10 composers
Marco Beltrami is one of ten composers contributing a movement for upcoming concert tribute to Bob Peak - PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION. Here is an excerpt from the announcement from Robert Townson:
"I have countless favorite classical pieces, but one of my favorites has always been Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. But much as I loved Mussorgsky’s original piece, my idea was to create a new Pictures at an Exhibition for a new age. To have all new music composed and have the inspiration for all the new music be the paintings of Bob Peak. Not his film paintings. They already have music attached to them. His other artwork. He did almost everything. New York World’s Fair 1964, 100th Anniversary of New York’s Brooklyn Bridge, he painted portraits of Mother Teresa, John Kennedy, Anwar Sadat, The Band that were featured on 45 different Time Magazine covers! He did paintings for The Olympics and the Special Olympics. For the United Nations and for the Academy of Motion Pictures arts and Sciences. He painted cars, and beautiful women and couples, and the American West. He did so much work, it could inspire 50 different versions of Pictures at an Exhibition. For 25 years it was a dream."
The other composers involved are: Michael Abels, Jeff Beal, Bill Conti, Mychael Danna, Ihab Darwish, Don Davis, Harry Gregson-Williams, Maria Newman and Marc Shaiman. Leonard Slatkin will conduct the world premiere on June 14th. For more information and to secure your ticket, visit Music Center's website.
