Klaus Badelt has a number of movies coming out in 2011. Already recorded is the score for the horror comedy Dylan Dog: Dead of Night. The film based on the comic book series Dylan Dog centers around supernatural private eye, Dylan Dog, who seeks out the monsters of the Louisiana bayou in his signature red shirt, black jacket, and blue jeans. The film is directed by Kevin Munroe, who previously worked with Badelt on the 2007 animated film TMNT (Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles). The movie stars Brandon Routh, Sam Huntington, Peter Stormare and Taye Diggs. No domestic release date has been announced, but the movie is scheduled to open in March in Italy (click here to watch the Italian movie trailer).

Also already recorded is Badelt’s music for the French sci-fi animation film The Prodigies. In the film directed by Antoine Charreyron, five young prodigies assaulted in New York’s Central Park plot the perfect revenge. A teaser trailer has recently been released, which can be watched below. To find more images from the movie, visit the French film webpage. The film will be released in France on May 25, 2011 and no US release date has been announced.

In a recent interview on Blog Talk Radio’s 123 FilmX show, Badelt also announced that he is scoring his first pure horror film The Howling: Reborn.

In addition, it has just been announced that Magnolia Pictures has picked up domestic rights for the French thriller Point Blank , which has been released in France last year. Badelt already released his score on his own label as announced last year.
