Oscar-nominated composer Ennio Morricone will be doing an original score for Quentin Tarantino’s new movie The Hateful Eight, Tarantino said today during the film’s panel at Comic-Con. It will be the first Western score for the prolific Morricone in 40 years and reunites the two after some harsh words were apparently smoothed over after their collaboration on Django Unchained.

The five-time Oscar nominee was a classmate of Sergio Leone, the king of the spaghetti Westerns, and he scored a bunch of iconic films in the genre including A Fistful Of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More and of course The Good The Bad And The Ugly. Morricone has also penned for the likes of John Carpenter, Brian De Palma, Barry Levinson, Mike Nichols and Oliver Stone as well as Giuseppe Tornatore, for whom he did the score for Cinema Paradiso.
