2014: June 19: SNOWPIERCER interview by Daniel Schweiger
New interview with Marco Beltrami has just been published by Film Music Magazine and you can read it
here. Except discussing
his work on SNOWPIERCER and collaboration with Joon-Ho Bong, the interview also briefly mentions Marco
Beltrami's future projects offering a little info on his GODS OF EGYPT schedule as well as few more
details regarding his score for THE HOMESMAN:
"This is such a crazy year with really varied projects.
THE GIVER is a teen drama based on a popular book, and THE HOMESMAN is a period drama that we recorded
outside and created aeolian harps and a water tank piano for. They are currently shooting GODS OF EGYPT.
From what I understand it is a 4-6 month shoot and then theyíll be in post for a year before we score!
That must mean a massive amount of visual fx!! Anyway, Buck and I saw some of the storyboards because
we had to come up with some music for them to shoot to, and apparently it was in the right direction.
Iím really looking forward to this one."
