Revered Italian composer Ennio Morricone has vowed never to work with Quentin Tarantino again, because he didn't like the way his music was used in "Django Unchained."
The 84-year-old maestro has worked with the filmmaker on four projects, but has slammed Tarantino for using music "without coherence."
The man behind classic Spaghetti Western film themes including "The Good The Bad and the Ugly" and "A Fistful of Dollars" gave Tarantino permission to use his "Ancora Qui" in "Django Unchained," alongside three instrumental pieces. The two film icons also worked together on "Inglourious Basterds" and the two "Kill Bill" films.
But, speaking to students at Rome's LUISS University earlier this week, Morricone said, "I wouldn't like to work with him again on anything. He said last year he wanted to work with me again ever since "Inglourious Basterds," but I told him I couldn't, because he didn't give me enough time. So he just used a song I had written previously."
Explaining the reason behind his Tarantino boycott, the composer added, "He places music in his films without coherence... and you can't do anything with someone like that."
And Morricone admits he wasn't a fan of "Django Unchained": "I didn't care for it, too much blood."
Obviously, the 84 year old Maestro needs to retire. Tarantino is a true artist, some may like his films some may not. It's his money and he can spend it, burn it, or give it away. Perhaps his next film will involve North Korea and an idiot spy named Dennis Rodman.. Money to be made with that!
