Published Oct 20, 2015Though he's 86 years old, it doesn't look like Ennio Morricone is going to retire any time soon. The legendary film composer already has his hand in scores for En mai, fais ce qu'il the plaît and Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, and now he's added another item to this year's list of projects. Specifically, he'll compose the music for Terrence Malick's Voyage of Time.
The long-running documentary attempts to discuss the history of the universe from its inception to its demise. An abbreviated 40-minute version narrated by Brad Pitt will be available in IMAX theatres, while a feature film narrated by Cate Blanchett will hit standard cinemas. Morricone's involvement in the film was confirmed by distributor Wild Bunch.
Morricone previously worked with Malick on his film Days of Heaven. While we can't wait to hear what he cooks up for Voyage of Time, the film does not yet have a release date.
