While speaking with Deadline, Oscar nominated composer Ennio Morricone has revealed Quentin Tarantino has already requested his composing services on his next film’s score. Apparently, he was willing to do so, but only if he could be given a lot more time and that he could work a bit closer with Tarantino on the film.
The collaboration might not be ending with The Hateful Eight. “Tarantino has already told me that there will be a next movie that we are going to make together,” the composer said, while indicating he hopes he has more of a warning than the limited window he was given to create Hateful. “I told him that in the future I would like to have much more time. I would like to start working with him even long before in order to have the time to work, to think about the music, and also to exchange more ideas with him about what I am going to score for him. I never ask any director to work with me, but it was Tarantino who told me, ‘OK, there will be a next time,” he laughed.
I expect that he’d like to do a true score, rather than use existing music creating much more new stuff. In the case of The Hateful Eight where they took his unused work from John Carpenter’s The Thing. Ennio recently won the Golden Globe for his Hateful Eight score, and might take the Oscar as well. At 87-years-old, I’m sure Quentin will be eager to put this unnamed film together soon, to make sure Ennio is able to make the score.
The only thing is that Quentin hasn’t made an officially announcement what his next film will be. Although, he revealed having four and half scripts ready to go. It does sound like his Bonnie and Clyde inspired 1930’s crime flick set in Australia could be his next picture. Considering, all the talking-up he has done in the press about the project recently giving the impression it’s the one that he’s most invested in.
