2019: January 15: FORD v. FERRARI confirmed

The film stars Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal, Tracy Letts, Caitriona Balfe, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Paul Sparks and Jack McMullen. The movie follows an eccentric, determined team of American engineers and designers, led by automotive visionary Carroll Shelby and his British driver, Ken Miles, who are dispatched by Henry Ford II and Iacocca with the mission of building a new automobile with the potential to defeat the dominant Ferrari at the 1966 Le Mans World Championship in France. Jez & John-Henry Butterworth (Edge of Tomorrow) wrote the screenplay. The project is produced by Chernin Entertainment.

Beltrami has previously collaborated with Mangold on 3:10 to Yuma (for which he earned an Academy Award nomination), The Wolverine and Logan. Ford v. Ferrari is currently scheduled to be released on June 28, 2019 by 20th Century Fox.

2019: January 02: What to expect in 2019 and new project announced
Happy new year, everyone! 2019 should be pretty big with 4 scores already recorded and probably a few more in the works that might still be released before the end of the year:
- EXTREMELY WICKED, SHOCKINGLY EVIL AND VILE will have its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival on January 26th but it will probably seek the distributor there. No wide release date has been announced yet.
- VELVET BUZZSAW will also premiere at Sundance only one day later and on February 1st will be released worldwide by Netflix. So far there is no information about soundtrack album. Trailer and poster will be added as soon as available.
- UNDERWATER is probably the "oldest" of the scores/movies waiting to be released. The score was recorded in late June/early July at Pianella Studios and 20th Century Fox was initially supposed to release the movie. Yet there is still no poster, stills or trailer available and it is probably up to Disney to release the movie now.
- FLARSKY will be released on June 7th and has been also recorded recently with participation of Macedonian Symphony Orchestra. No trailer, posters or stills have been published either and everything will be added as soon as available.
- SNOWPIERCER: THE TV SERIES pilot for the new series was initially directed by Scott Derickson who later left the project when new showrunner was brought in and James Hawes was hired as the new director.
