One of the things I love most about Tarantino films are the soundtracks (Jackie Brown is a personal fav). I'm not sure if Tarantino has had an origonal score in any of his previous films, but it's brilliant to see Ennio Morricone is going to produce an original score for Tarantinos latest film The Hateful Eight. And for the first time in 40 years!
The Quentin Tarantino-corralled panel for his upcoming Western The Hateful Eight – read all about that here – came with the golden news nugget that composing great Ennio Morricone will be providing him with his first original score. It’ll be Morricone’s first Western score in four decades. Morricone, of course, is a master of creating musical landscapes for the Old West, with his Sergio Leone scores for films like The Good, The Bad And The Ugly and Once Upon A Time In The West offering a library of ageless cues and themes. He heads to Prague to record in the next couple of weeks, revealed Tarantino. Time will tell if, like those Leone Westerns, he’ll be penning musical motifs for the movie’s eight rogues and n’er-do-wells.
