Zanelli has recorded his score this past June at Abbey Road Studios in London. Leo will premiere on November 21, 2023 on Netflix.

Zanelli’s other recent projects include Jeff Celentano’s The Hill (to be released in theaters this Friday, August 25), Michael Hines’ Man & Witch and Pierre Morel’s Freelance. He also recently recorded his score for the animated feature 10 Lives.
