2013: September 02: The Seventh Son still in trouble
While Marco Beltrami is currentlyworking on his score (some elements have been recorded back in early August including solo harpsichord) as well as new movie with Tommy Lee Jones THE HOMESMAN, it seems that it will take much longer than originally expected before we get to see the movie and hear new Marco Beltrami's score. THE SEVENTH SON was originally set to be released this Fall and Tuomas Kantelinen recorded his score earlier this year. A.R. Rahman was also briefly involved but claimed to have backed out of the project on his Twitter account. Shortly after the movie got delayed until January 17, 2014 and Marco Beltrami was hired to score new version, which was still supposed to be distributed by Warner Bros. while Legendary Pictures financed the production. But the deal between Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. is coming to its end and while there is still few movies that are currently in production and will be released during 2014 as part of original Legendary Pictures/Warner Bros. deal, THE SEVENTH SON isn't one of them. The movie will get released through Universal Pictures who will be handling distribution for Legendary Pictures for the next 5 years and new release date will have to be announced by the new distributor. The movie is still listed as mid January release in Korea and Thailand only. No release dates are currently announced for US, EU and rest of the world.

Marco Beltrami will reunite with director Ole Bornedal (NIGHTWATCH, DEEP WATER,
I AM DINA, THE SUBSTITUTE) scoring his upcoming epic TV series 1864 - Denmark's most expensive television production ever. Historical TV series is revolving around the Battle of Dybbol, which was a national drama for the whole Denmark, as declared to the press by Bornedal: "1864 was a fateful year for Denmark. The nation lost the Battle of Dybbol to the Prussians and, in turn, two thirds of its land and population, 5,000 troops and a good measure of self-respect. The ignominious defeat became a national trauma that can still make Danes feel small". 1864 is currently in production and will be released in 2014. You can check a few very promising photos here .

The recording sessions for James Mangold's sequel entitled THE WOLVERINE has started last week and continued until yesterday at The Newman Scoring Stage at 20th Century Fox.

Some parts needed to be recorded in even more detailed form than that.

2013: April 17: Marco Beltrami discusses THE WOLVERINE
 After having recently recorded SNOWPIERCER and while he is currently in London recording his score for WORLD WAR Z, Marco Beltrami has already started working on his next project THE WOLVERINE and here is an excerpt from Jon Burlingame's article in Variety where he mentioned a few details about his next score: As for Marco Beltrami, who is just starting to write music for "The Wolverine" - the fifth cinema outing for Hugh Jackman as the mysterious, long-clawed "X-Men" character - he says "there are definitely expectations, just with the nature of the project. But it's fun to play with those expectations." Even though the story takes place in Japan,"musically, it's not going to be overtly Japanese because it could easily fall into cliche,"Beltrami says. He doesplan on using traditional Japanese instruments (including the koto and massive taiko drums) but "in a non-traditional way,"he adds. Director James Mangold (with whom Beltrami worked on "3:10 to Yuma," which earned the composer his first Oscar nomination)"has made a real original movie here, so there is room for a less traditional score, less of a cookie-cutter musical orientation."He will record in L.A. at the end of May.

2013: April 08: new project THE HOMESMAN
Earlier this month Tommy Lee Jones started shooting his upcoming drama THE HOMESMAN, including cast of TLJ, Meryl Streep, John Ligthgow, James Spader, Hilary Swank and Tim Blake Nelson.

While there was still no release date announced, it seems that there is finally first sample from Marco Beltrami¨s score for SNOW PIERCER finally available on YouTube and you can listen to it below. There was one more sample claiming to be from the score posted on YouTube but that was obvious fake. This one, while still suspicious sounds like it could actually come from the score, which is described as "hybrid small orchestra/electronic score".
Also posted on the YouTube is a little score restore featuring opening sequence of WARM BODIES with full Marco Beltrami's score, which was partially replaced with a couple of songs. You can watch both the final and score only version added to the previous post.
