German Playboy Admits That Some Of Ennio Morricone’s Quotes About Quentin Tarantino Were “Reproduced Incorrectly”
Over the weekend, an interview between German Playboy and legendary film composer Ennio Morricone went viral due to some quotes he allegedly made about two-time collaborator Quentin Tarantino. Ennio called QT a “cretin,” and “not a director.” He described Quentin’s style as blatantly stealing from others and called his films “trash.”
After the interview gained some attention, Ennio released a statement saying the quotes weren’t from him. German Playboy stood by its story. But now Variety is reporting that German Playboy has admitted that the story wasn’t exactly the truth.
Iconic Film Composer Ennio Morricone Thinks Quentin Tarantino Sucks At His Job (UPDATE: He Denies Saying It)
Ennio Morricone is a famed composer of countless film scores, including “spaghetti westerns” like A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and Once Upon a Time in the West, as well as John Carpenter’s “The Thing,” Terrence Malick’s Days of Heaven and many more. He’s collaborated with foot guy film director Quentin Tarantino on two separate occasions (a piece from Django Unchained and the score for The Hateful Eight) and clearly loves the man.
There’s typecasting, and then there’s very, very, specific typecasting. And then there’s Charles Manson casting, which Australian actor Damon Herriman has fallen victim to. He’s been cast to play Charlie in two different productions. According to Collider, Damon has already filmed scenes as Charlie for the upcoming season of David Fincher’s Netflix series Mindhunter. And it’s just been announced that he was signed to play Charlie in Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon a Time In Hollywood which maybe they should considering renaming Twice Upon A Time.
Anyone who was looking forward to rushing out on opening night to watch Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in vintage Sears catalogue models realness in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood just realized that everything good comes at a price. And this price of admission now includes Lena Dunham. You wish on a haunted monkey’s paw for Brad Pitt to look hot again, and this is what you get.
The Hollywood Reporter has some new casting news regarding Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Manson Family film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Lena has been cast in an unknown role, and this will be her fist big studio appearance on film (she’s been in movies before, but mostly indies). It will also be her first onscreen role since her show Girls ended in 2017.
Also added to the cast list along side Brad, Leo, Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, Damian Lewis, James Marsden, Luke Perry, and Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate is Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman’s daughter Maya Hawke (huh, I wonder how she landed that gig). Also former wife of Eli Roth, Lorenza Izzo, and Vanessa Hudgens’ boyfriend Austin Butler.
The movie is still a bit of a secret, so we don’t really know who is playing what, besides Brad, Leo, and Margot. But my guess is Lena might play the only Manson Family member who is specifically asked to leave for talking too damn much and having less of a filter than Charlie.
Margot Robbie is playing Sharon Tate in the Quentin Tarantino movie about the Manson Family murders, the movie that Sharon’s sister was against but is now okay with. Margot took to Instagram today to show off her lewk that actually looks pretty decent – Brad Pitt, who did you piss off in the makeup trailer??
Back in the 90s, all Julia Roberts had to do was fart on camera (or just do Mona Lisa Smile…same difference), and a production studio would fork over $20 million. These days, Hollywood is pinching pennies, realizing audiences care more about the CGI than who is starring in a flick. Why pay for Meryl Streep when you can just hire one of those Westworld robots? It doesn’t mean you’re going to see The Rock and other actors in line at the soup kitchen…it just means they’re paid differently (aka back-end deals). Or, if you’re him, you just say you won’t Tweet about the movie you have opening on Friday unless the studio forks over a cool million dollars. Continue reading
