Ennio Morricone to score Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight

Somewhere out there is a magical, alternative “other” internet, where users’ Facebook feeds aren’t crammed with photos of their friends hanging out with comic book characters or pastel Wookies at the infamous San Diego Comic Con. Perhaps that “other” internet is your internet. Perhaps you’re a young Amish teen on Rumspringa and are just now encountering the world wide web. Whatever the case, gentle, unaware reader, this story is for you. Because this story is about the news that has taken Music/Film Facebook by storm. This story is about Ennio Morricone signing on to score Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

So, that’s it! That’s the story. Tarantino screened some never-before-seen footage from the flick, which will be released in rare 70mm in select theaters this holiday season, and then he announced that Morricone would be writing his first Western score in 40 years. Tarantino also joked that his movies were so long they were always forced to get cut down, so why not just do an eight-hour HBO-style miniseries? Because YOLO! Which honestly… this is a great idea and someone should start a change.org petition to get him to actually do it.
