Morricone joins film commission

Composer will help promote Italian region of Lazio

ROME — Honorary Oscar-winner Ennio Morricone has been appointed board member of the Rome/Lazio Film Commission as part of a push to lure more international productions to the Eternal City and the surrounding region.

The prolific composer with worldwide fans will have an active role in the recently established entity, which has begun offering fiscal incentives and co-production coin to foreign producers, and even permitted shooting inside the Colosseum to Fox’s Doug Liman-helmed sci-fi thriller “Jumper” last year.

Upcoming Hollywood pics expected to be shooting either in Rome or the surrounding area include “The Da Vince Code” followup “Angels & Demons” and Roman Polanski’s epic “Pompeii.”
