Morricone Basterds?

Nov. 10, 2008by:

With his "guys on a mission" epic INGLORIOUS BASTARDS set at the height of WWII, it's not like filmmaker Quentin Tarantino can flip through his undoubtedly expansive LP collection seeking obscure rock/pop/soul gems to pepper his soundtrack.

How about a score from a legendary composer? QT has reportedly approached "il maestro" Ennio Morricone about providing the music for the wartime espionage and Nazi scalping. The pair had previously planned to collaborate but it never came together -- let's hope it works out this time.

The almost impossibly prolific Morricone (who turns 80 today!) is perhaps best known for his spaghetti western scores, but counts just about every genre among his literally hundreds of films.

Extra Tidbit: After five nominations (including THE MISSION and THE UNTOUCHABLES), Morricone was finally given an honorary Oscar in 2007.

Morricone's past 80. The dude hasn't got loads of time left. Scoring a QT WW2 epic would be a fuckin' brilliant swan song. Fingers crossed that this goes ahead.

Do it! Doooo it!

I think it's time these two collabo'ed on a film, don't you?

QT has already shown a crush on Morricone's music, using it in Kill Bill. Morricone can score pretty much any movie! And if this is the great movie it promises to be, even better! Make it happen, Weinsteins!

Awesomeness. Tanrantino has previously used Morricone music in Kill Bill vol. 2, and it definitely suits his style.

It would be awesome if Morricone did the score, hell Morricone scoring anything is awesome... and would make up for him casting Roth in the film, can't believe he's done that.

This is wonderful news. Morricone is my favorite composer and he truly writes some amazing music.
To those who have heard that the script sucks, let me say that everyone said the same thing about both Kill Bills and Jackie Brown, and those turned out to be awesome films, in my humble opinion. Most scripts suck until you actually see them played out on screen.

I agree vdtd, this is epic. Or it could be an epic fail. I heard the script blows but I'll reserve judgement. At least the music will be fan-fucking-tastic.
