Daft Punk Reportedly Contributing Score To Dario Argento Film
Italian director Dario Argento told La Repubblica Daft Punk are composing and recording a score for his new film, Occhiali neri. The news was reported by Mixmag, a publication that notes the movie’s name translates to Black Glasses in English.
A translation of the portion of the interview regarding Daft Punk from Redditor -drifloon- can be read below:
One of my most interesting, so says who read the script, including Daft Punk, who signed the soundtrack. They are my admirers, they know all my cinema. They heard from French friends that I was shooting a new film and called me: “We want to work with you”. We feel very often, ‘we’ll send you the first tracks soon’, they’re enthusiastic. They’ll come to Rome as soon as they can.
Daft Punk — the French electronic duo consisting of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter — previously composed the score for the 2010 film Tron: Legacy. The pair’s last official Daft Punk album was 2013’s Random Access Memory and they also teamed with The Weeknd on 2016’s “Starboy.” Dario Argento’s past films include 2012’s Dracula 3D, 1987’s Opera and The Inferno in 1980. Asia Argento, the director’s daughter, is set to appear in Occhiali neri.
