2018: April 30: new project: UNDERWATER
Marco Beltrami has recently started working on upcoming thriller UNDERWATER starring Kristen Stewart, T.J. Miller, Jessica Henwick and Vincent Cassell. The movie, directed by William Eubank (The Signal), resolves around a crew of underwater researchers who must scramble to safety after an earthquake devastates their subterranean laboratory. 20th Century Fox will released the movie later in 2018. Here is a quote about the project from recent FSMO interview: "The next thing is a movie for Fox called Underwater, which is a scary movie. Returning to my roots here, I guess. It’s a really interesting project in many ways. It has a young director [William Eubank] and he’s an interesting guy. He takes electronic music classes himself, so he knows a little bit about it and is really into utilizing some of the stuff in the score. I think it’s going to be really fun working with him. We’re just starting on it. I’m doing it as a co-score with someone that I work with, Brandon Roberts, so we’re just starting to put some ideas together. We had some sessions with some singers, creating these sharper tones. I think it’s going to be cool."

2018: February 22: Marco Beltrami provides new score for FORTNITE
Marco Beltrami and Pinar Toprak co-composed new original score for videogame FORTNITE. Beltrami said seeing Fortnite and its gameplay was crucial when creating the new score. "When I first heard about the game, I had an image in my head and you respond musically to that image. But, until you actually see it and see how it works, it really changes," he said. "Because it sounds like it could be kind of dark. You know, the monsters are coming and you have to defend and shoot them. But it has more of a family-type of feel to it. I think the fact that you’re not just defending yourself, but also trying to save other people ... all of these things are really important elements musically, because music is the emotional undercurrent of the story. And the player has to feel that." Check out Rolling Stones article for details and listen to the brief clip below.

2018: February 10: new interview with Sound of the Movies
