2023: January 14: New project: RENFIELD
Marco Beltrami has been hired and is set to record his score for upcoming horror comedy RENFIELD this weekend. Directed by Chris McKay (The Lego Batman Movie, Tomorrow War), the film centers on Renfield (Nicholas Hoult), who has grown sick and tired of his centuries as Dracula’s (Nicolas Cage) lackey. The henchman finds a new lease on life and maybe even redemption when he falls for feisty, perennially angry traffic cop Rebecca Quincy (Awkwafina).

Based on the story by Robert Kirkman (Walking Dead) and screenplay by Ryan Ridley (Community, Rick and Morty), RENFIELD also stars Ben Schwartz, Shohreh Aghdashloo and Caroline Williams. McKay and Kirman are also producing the project together with David Alpert and Bryan & Sean Furst.

Universal Pictures will release Skybound Entertainment production on April 14, 2023.

2023: February 28: THE FACULTY opens early
After some confusion with it's release date, THE FACULTY has been released today and can be purchased from Intrada Records. Full album details had been added to the project's page and more purchase links will be added as well. In the meantime here is the press announcement:

Premier 2-CD release of sizzling Marco Beltrami sci-fi horror score! Dimension Films presents in 1998, Robert Rodriguez directs, Kevin Williamson scripts, attractive cast features Jordana Brewster, Josh Hartnett, Elijah Wood, Clea DuVall, Robert Patrick, Piper Laurie, Shawn Hatosy, Salma Hayek, many others. The students at Herrington High School are rowdy crop, tough on each other and their teachers. Then without fanfare, they become targets of an alien virus that turns people into monsters. And unfriendly ones at that. Mayhem ensues. Beltrami was already a veteran of the horror genre, having scored dynamic music for Scream and Mimic for the same studio prior to The Faculty. For this intense and violent thriller, Beltrami scores for full orchestra in a dazzling display of aggressive action music requiring the players to provide numerous techniques with their instruments, from entrances at different times and pitches to uncommon bowing techniques, horn glissandi, detuned instruments and numerous other devices. Rhythms are fierce, the harmonic vernacular frightening. In balance, Beltrami also offers undercurrents of music oblivious to the alien invasion, a musical calm before the storm. Action highlights are many: “Offensive Coach” provides more than three minutes of riveting intensity, “Pop Pop Fizz Fizz” offers berserk orchestral fury, “Just Say No” builds to a dynamic rhythmic finish, “Standing Tall” is pure drama and action, “Zeke And The Geek” offers orchestral razzle dazzle, many others follow suit. “Love Me Tender” is especially exciting! Ditto “Modest Mary” and “Drugs Kill”. On the opposite side, Beltrami offers a strong theme for Casey and another for the student body as a whole. Special spotlight goes to “Lounge Lizards”, where Beltrami opens with his haunting minor key idea for Casey, slides into the broader student body theme, then works the music inexorably into musical chaos and action. When all is said and done, “The Kids Are Alright” ushers in the remaining student body to a rich development of their theme, leading to the closing powerhouse rhythmic treatment of the tune for “Extra Credit”. Two following cues offer an alternate version of “Casey” and Beltrami’s demo version of “Too Cool For School”. This scores packs fireworks! Tim Greiving provides informative booklet notes, Kay Marshall designs the dramatic packaging. John Kurlander records and mixes at Skywalker Sound in October and November 1998, William Boston, Peter Anthony, Robert Elhai, Jon Kull, Kevin Manthei orchestrate, Marco Beltrami composes, conducts the Hollywood Studio Orchestra. Intrada Special Collection 2-CD set available while quantities and interest remain!

2022: December 24: New project: SILENT NIGHT
Marco Beltrami has been hired to score upcoming action movie SILENT NIGHT directed by veteran John Woo. The story centers on Godlock (Joel Kinnaman), a father on a mission to avenge his young son, who was tragically caught in the crossfire of gang violence on Christmas Eve. Catalina Sandino Moreno also stars in the film as Saya, Godlock’s wife, while Harold Torres will take on the role of the gang leader, Playa. Robert Archer Lynn wrote the screenplay, which contains no dialogue. Instead, the film will rely on the actor’s abilities to convey meaning and intention through Woo’s stylized imagery and intense action sequences.
The film will also include new version of Silent Night arranged and performed by Marco's son Tristan. You can already listen to this track in its entirety on Marco Beltrami's Instagram . So far no release date has been announced but the film is expected in 2023.

2022: November 18: MIMIC reissued without any upgrade of its content
Varese Sarabande has announced reissue of long-sold out MIMIC: Deluxe Edition. While the album is supposedly newly remastered from the first generation masters, this "new" edition includes identical content as the previous album and repeats all of its issues (missing not only about 15 minutes of STILL entirely unreleased music as well as material which was included on the old 30-minute album yet never made it to either of these expansions). Good for those who missed the previous expansion only, the others probably don't need to bother with this another wasted opportunity from Varese. Either way this edition is again limited to 1000 copies only so won't probably last long.
