Marco Beltrami has signed on to score the upcoming drama True Story. The film is directed by Rupert Goold and stars Jonah Hill, James Franco, Felicity Jones, Ethan Suplee and Gretchen Mol. The movie is based on journalist Michael Finkel’s memoirs about the relationship between Finkel and Christian Longo, a Most Wanted List murderer who for years lived outside the U.S. under Finkel’s name. David Kajganich (The Invasion) has written the screenplay. Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner & Jeremy Kleiner (12 Years a Slave, The Tree of Life, Killing Them Softly) are producing the Plan B Entertainment and New Regency Pictures production. Beltrami has previously scored last year’s World War Z for Plan B and the producers. True Story is currently in post-production and will be distributed by Fox. No release date has been announced yet.

What kind of score this is?

The film will be screened during Sundance film festival early next year... and probably look for the distributor there... either way it will be perhaps another year before it will get wider release (and the score album, unless it ends up like THE DROP) frown

What kind of score this is?

I would describe it as low-key, atmospheric yet quite attractive. Moments of ambient mystery, plenty of piano and expressive strings, sound design. A few moments of lovely harp writing and occasional guitar. Plenty of dark and moody spots. Some rhythm here and there for urgency. I personally really like it. It's haunting, meditative and often very beautiful.

Similar to those two, but less action/thriller material, more just slow-burn suspense at times. It's really no more or less thematic than those two; it does have a theme but it it's used sparingly.

I'm not thoroughly familiar with the score, but I don't believe any of the music in the trailer is from the score.

ok.. I am definitely curious about this one... but much more anxious to hear Seventh Son and The Gunman, which also had the trailer just released and looks very good indeed.


Any news what's next on their schedule? Agent 47 or Gods of Egypt?

First review of the movie:

"It’s an assured, impressive first effort, given added heft from Marco Beltrami’s near-constant yet non-invasive score — the sort of elegant, slightly melancholy accompaniment most often associated with Carter Burwell, beautifully rendered in pianos and strings. If anything, the music invites a depth of introspection upon which the screenplay can’t quite deliver."
