Ennio Morricone and Quentin Tarantino have quite the impressive working relationship, having teamed up on Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight, allowing for the legendary composer to create great scores for new movies while Tarantino gets the sound he's always wanted. According to a new interview with the 87-year-old composer, it looks like they're going to work together again on Tarantino's next movie, though nobody knows what kind of film it will be.
Speaking with Deadline earlier this week, Morricone shared the news that Tarantino asked him to score the next project he's working on. While he doesn't know what movie the acclaimed director is going to make, the fact that Morricone is known for Westerns could be a hint!
"Tarantino has already told me that there will be a next movie that we are going to make together. ... 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," the composer revealed, according to SlashFilm. "I never ask any director to work with me, but it was Tarantino who told me, 'OK, there will be a next time.'"
The composer also spoke about how he likes working with Tarantino, especially regarding the creative freedom he's allowed while writing.
"Quentin Tarantino didn't give me any kind of specific indication. He didn't express any requirements, so this gave me a lot of freedom," he said. "But at the same time, it put on me a much bigger responsibility. I was motivated only by the willingness to do better than I had done in the past and to give him a unique score."
