2021: January 01: 2021 RELEASE SCHEDULE
With number of delayed project that have been completed last year, 2021 should bring a plenty of new projects hopefully accompanied by score albums as well.. Here is the complete list of currently known projects, which are set for release during 2021:

- AMERICAN NIGHT - the score was completed this Fall. So far the movie has its release date announced for Italy only (March 4th), although it may possibly appear at various festivals (Sundance?) and seek internatioanl distribution there.
- CHAOS WALKING - co-composed by Brandon Roberts. The score was completed in Spring/early Summer 2020. Lionsgate is expected to release the movie on March 5th.
- A QUIET PLACE: PART II - the score was recorded in February and the movie has been delayed several times since. Paramount is currently expected to release the film on April 23rd. Soundtrack album is coming from Paramount Music (iTunes) and if another label will release it physically remains to be seen.
- VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE - currently in the works. Very little is known about the movie, which is set for release on June 25th.
- FEAR STREET Trilogy - co-composed by Anna Drubich. Netflix will release all three parts of the trilogy this summer. No dates have been confirmed, but the first part is also expected to be released at the end of June, with others following within a few weeks of each other (initially 2 weeks apart, possibly month apart).

There are some possible projects, which may still get released at the end of the year - eg SHADOWS IN MY EYES or third season of TWILIGHT ZONE (so far the series has been neither renewed, nor cancelled). Stay tuned for any updates, which will be posted as soon as available. Happy new year!

 

2021: January 14: New interview with Marcus Trumpp
New interview with Marcus Trumpp has been published last month by Cinema World. 20+ minute interview covers all of the recent projects including L'EMPEREUR DE PARIS, VELVET BUZZSAW, GEMINI MAN, LOVE AND MONSTERS, A QUITE PLACE: PART II and upcoming VENOM 2 as well as his latest solo projects. Unfortunately it is available in German only so if anyone would be capable of translating it or provide more detailed summary, please, let me know.

2020: December 20: AMERICAN NIGHT
Marco Beltrami recently completed original score for AMERICAN NIGHT, a neo-noir set in the New York City's corrupt contemporary art world. Michael Rubino (Emile Hirsch) has just become the Don of the New York Mafia, but his greatest dream is to devote his life to painting and become a great artist. John Kaplan (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), an art dealer, may feel like his life is in shambles, but he still has the best eye for spotting fakes in the world. Their paths, apparently distant, cross when Andy Warhol’s Pink Marilyn is stolen, setting off a series of unexpected events that upend their lives...
AMERICAN NIGHT is directed by Alessio Jim Della Valle, who also wrote original screenplay, and also stars Paz Vega, Jeremy Piven, Michael Madsen and pop singer Anastacia, who is contributing original song for the movie.
Ceiri Torjussen provided additional music for the project.
AMERICAN NIGHT is produced by Martha Capello, Ilaria Dello Iacono, and Giorgio Ferrero, in association with Giovanni Cova and with Viris, in collaboration with Tiziana Rocca. The movie will have its world premiere in Italy on March 4th, 2021. So far there are no information regarding international release dates.

Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks, Fifty Shades of Grey) wrote the screenplay. Avi Arad (Iron Man, The Amazing Spider-Man), Matt Tolmach (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Amy Pascal (Spiderman: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse) and Hutch Parker (X-Men: Days of Future Past & Apocalypse) are producing the Marvel Entertainment and Tencent Pictures production. Plot details are currently unknown.
Beltrami has previously composed the music for several Marvel films (produced by Parker), including Logan, The Wolverine and Fantastic Four. Goransson has scored Ruben Fleischer’s 2018 original Venom film.  The film was originally intended to be released in North America on October 2, 2020. But due to the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.

2020: AUGUST 29: SHADOWS IN MY EYES
Marco Beltrami has started working on upcoming Danish WWII drama SKYGGEN I MIT OJE (SHADOWS IN MY EYES) for director Ole Bornedal. The movie marks the 6th collaboration of the two following NIGHTWATCH (additional music), DEEP WATER, I AM DINA, THE SUBSTITUTE and 1864. Bornedal wrote his own screenplay based on true events from March 21st, 1945 when the British Royal Air Force was tasked with bombing the Shellhus; used as the Gestapo headquarters in the centre of Copenhagen. The raid had unexpected consequences, as some of the bombers accidentally targeted the local French school and more than 120 innocent civilians were killed, 86 of whom were children. As a result of the British victory, the Shellhus was entirely destroyed, 18 prisoners were freed and Nazi anti-resistance activities were disrupted. In a press release published by Miso Film, the director explained: “Shadows in My Eyes is about children. It’s seen through the eyes of children, from that perspective, and with the sense of wonder with which children must observe a grotesque world around them. It’s the story of innocence versus machines, of the child who falls victim to the horrors of coincidence.”
The movie was filmed largely in Czech Republic at the end of 2019 and in early 2020 (with some additional filming still required) and is currently scheduled for January 6th, 2022 release in Denmark by SF Studios. International distribution will be handled by Netflx with specific release date yet to be announced.
