February 05, 2014: three new projects announced and new interview
In recent interview for Goose Talk Patrick Doyle discussed not only his lengthy collaboration with Sir Kenneth Branagh including their latest project JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT but also offers a few hints regarding his upcoming plans: "I’m working with Mike Newell at the moment for the fourth time and he says I’m a complete romantic, because the first place I turn towards is the string section. They are also essential for giving you drive and energy and are “the backbone of the orchestra”, as I was taught at school. Everything completely revolves around them in many ways."  So far there is actually no news about any new Mike Newell projects besides recently announced remake of The Day of the Triffids, Newell will be directing for Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures. Hopefully more information regarding this "mysterious" project will be revealed soon.
In the meantime Film Music Reporter announced two new interesting projects Patrick Doyle will be working on next. The first is upcoming Dreamworks animation's B.O.O.: BUREAU OF OTHERWORLDLY OPERATIONS, which follows two bumbling apparitions who find themselves in an extraordinary after-life adventure when they join the Bureau of Otherworldly Operations (B.O.O.), the ghost world’s elite counter-haunting unit. The movie is directed by Tony Leondis and will be released on June 5th, 2015.
The other one is BBC Earth Films' upcoming ENCHANTED KINGDOM 3D, which is directed by Patrick Morris and Neil Nightingale and provides a never-before-seen perspective of the African continent using groundbreaking new 3D technology. Patrick Doyle is currently working on his score. So far there is no release date set, but it is expected later this year.

January 07, 2014: La-La Land Presents DEAD AGAIN
"Paramount Pictures and La-La Land Records are happy to announce the expanded and newly remastered score to Patrick Doyle’s masterpiece DEAD AGAIN. Clocking in at over 78 minutes, tons of material has been added to this lush and bombastic score. Full of melody and intrigue, composer Doyle takes the listener deep inside the psyche of Kenneth Branagh’s intense film and helps them navigate through the twist and turns of this reincarnation Hitchcockian thriller. Film composer/score historian Brain Satterwhite examines this twisted film noir exploring the film, its inspiration and Doyle’s intricate score. Dan Goldwasser’s art direction rounds out this gothic thriller’s package. One of our favorite scores of the 1990’s finally gets to be heard in all it’s glory (even featuring music cut from the final film)." The cover and tracklist will be revealed next Tuesday when this limited edition of 2000 copies goes on sale at La-La Land Records.
