Ennio Morricone To Score Tarantino’s ‘Hateful Eight’; First Western In 40 Years

Jul 12, 2015


Quentin Tarantino made another appearance at Comic-Con, to reveal seven minutes of footage, along with a huge bombshell for spaghetti western fans. Legendary Italian composer Ennio Morricone will score The Hateful Eight, his first western in forty years. Ennio being the mastermind behind iconic scores like Once Upon A Time In The West, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, A Fist Full of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More, The Untouchables, and Once Upon A Time In America. Earning over five hundred film credits, which is beyond stunning for anyone to contemplate.


Tarantino has been sampling Morricone’s existing work for ages, and even attempted to work with him for Django Unchained. He’s a massive fan of Ennio and likely is a dream come true for the filmmaker, the composer’s involvement should help make his straight-up western an even bigger draw for western film fans.

He also mentioned a desire to return to Kill Bill 3, developing a mini-series for television and again confirming retiring from film after ten films, Hateful Eight being his eighth.
