Marco Beltrami revealed in a recent interview with Next Best Picture that he is currently scoring the upcoming biographical drama Ford v. Ferrari. The film is directed by James Mangold (Walk the Line, Girl, Interrupted, Cop Land) and stars Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal, Tracy Letts, Caitriona Balfe, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Paul Sparks and Jack McMullen. The movie follows an eccentric, determined team of American engineers and designers, led by automotive visionary Carroll Shelby and his British driver, Ken Miles, who are dispatched by Henry Ford II and Iacocca with the mission of building a new automobile with the potential to defeat the dominant Ferrari at the 1966 Le Mans World Championship in France. Jez & John-Henry Butterworth (Edge of Tomorrow) wrote the screenplay. The project is produced by Chernin Entertainment. Beltrami has previously collaborated with Mangold on 3:10 to Yuma (for which he earned an Academy Award nomination), The Wolverine and Logan. Ford v. Ferrari is currently scheduled to be released on June 28, 2019 by 20th Century Fox.

As previously reported, Beltrami also has Dan Gilroy’s Velvet Buzzsaw (premiering at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and to be released on Netflix and in select theaters on February 1), the thriller  Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (co-scored with Dennis Smith and also premiering at Sundance), the comedy Flarsky (co-scored with Miles Hankins, to be released on June 7) and William Eubank’s Underwater (co-scored with Brandon Roberts) coming up.

  1. Lucas Wilson says:

    Not a surprise – Beltrami has worked with Mangold on a number of films. Hopefully he can give us a great score worthy of the story
