Morricone accepts ‘Inglorious’ offer

Tarantino asks composer to score 'Bastards'

Will Ennio Morricone score “Bastards”?

The Italian composer says he has accepted Quentin Tarantino‘s offer to write the music for “Inglorious Bastards” — but may not be able to cover all the needed material, given the pic’s time constraints.

“Tarantino will finish shooting the film in February and has to deliver it by the end of April in time for Cannes,” says the famously meticulous maestro from his Rome home. “That doesn’t leave me enough time to do the music. Either I start working on it before he stops shooting — after we discuss it together — or I just can’t do it.”

Tarantino, who has been in Germany shooting the WWII pic toplining Brad Pitt as a Tennessee hillbilly who takes on the Nazis, is known to be a massive Morricone fan.

But while he has used several Morricone Spaghetti Western themes for “Kill Bill” and “Death Proof,” having the composer do all of the music for “Bastards” would mark his first full original score on a Tarantino film.

Still, says Morricone, “I might end up just writing a couple of tracks.”

Considering Morricone refused to contribute even a few minutes of original music for “Pulp Fiction,” the composer has certainly changed his tune.
