Daft Punk set to score Dario Argento’s next film


In a torrent of incredibly exciting news, Italian filmmaking legend and giallo horror master Dario Argento has revealed new details surrounding his next film–titled Black Glasses–including a collaboration with Daft Punk, who are set to provide the film’s score.

Black Glasses will be Argento’s first film in nearly a decade, with 2012’s Dracula 3D… Well, it’s not one to remember much. But Argento has described Glasses as his return to crime films. “It’s the adventure, in the nocturnal Rome, of a Chinese girl and child. In the second part, the escape takes them into the rocky, bushy countryside of Lazio… different from the sweetness of the Tuscan valleys, but for me beautiful.”

In addition, none other than Daft Punk will be providing the score. Legends of the electronic music scene, the duo of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo apparently reached out to Argento. “They heard from French friends that I was shooting a new film and called me,” Argento said, going on to reveal that the first pieces of the score are expected to come in soon.

Mostly sticking to their music, Daft Punk did compose the soundtrack to 2010’s Tron: Legacy.

Black Glasses is set to begin filming this September.
